Open access book fund launched for UG and UMCG authors

16 February 2022

The University of Groningen has introduced an open access book fund. UG- or UMCG-affiliated authors can apply for funding the publication of their monograph or edited volume.

This new funding instrument aims to stimulate the publication of open access academic books.

The fund can be used to pay for the open access fee, also known as Book Processing Charge (BPC). The maximum reimbursement is 8,000 Euros per publication.

The Open Access support team is here to help and advise you with regard to book contract negotiations. If you have any questions and require assistance, please contact us at openaccess

The selected book publisher should meet the requirements of the Directory of Open Access Books; the book or edited volume should preferably be published under a Creative Commons license.

The fund is launched as a pilot within the Open Science Programme of the UG and will run until August 2023.

If you have any questions about the fund, please email us at openaccess
