Apply for SNSF Open Access publication grants
Research and Transfer Service
12 October 2018
As of October 2018 researchers can apply for grants for open access publications on the mySNF online platform. Support can be requested at any time, irrespective of whether the SNSF research project is still ongoing or has already ended. The SNSF provides grants to finance only scientific publications that are made available immediately, without restriction and free of charge (gold open access).
There are three types of processing charges funded by the SNSF:
- APCs: for articles in open access journals
- BPCs: for open access book publications
- BCPCs: for book chapters of open access book publications.
The application process is fast and simple, only a few details of your gold open access publication are required.
You can ask the SNSF to directly pay the publisher’s invoice (preferred choice) or ask for a reimbursement of already paid publication costs (up to six months after the publication date).
