Open access book fund expected to run out soon

14 June 2023
oa book fund

The UG’s open access book fund is expected to run out soon. The fund was very successful, with 56 applications received since the fund’s launch in February 2022. The fund was initially supposed to run until August 2023, but given its popularity, the budget is running out earlier than expected. The continuation of the fund beyond August 2023 will be decided in the upcoming months and is conditional on funding renewal by the UG.

Authors who wish to apply for the fund are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. We expect to be able to accommodate only a few more requests.

The fund in a nutshell

UG- and UMCG-affiliated authors can apply for a maximum of €8,000 to support the publication of their open access monographs or edited volumes. Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis.

Statistics about the fund’s usage

As of 14 June 2023, the fund has received 56 applications, of which 8 were rejected or withdrawn by the applicants, 43 were granted and 5 are currently in a waiting list.

The fund was greatly popular with the humanities and social sciences disciplines.

For any questions about the fund, please contact openaccess rug.nl.
