In addition to what is provided by the so-called "fondo personale/persönlicher Fonds" and by the research/event funds, the unibz Open Access publishing fund covers article processing charges (APC) for Open Access papers published by unibz members.
Application for the unibz Open Access Publishing Fund
The author collects all the relevant information regarding the publication costs. Affiliation with unibz must be specified during the article submission process.
The library will contact the author shortly and if the request is accepted, the library communicates to the publisher all the relevant information for invoicing.
The Autonomous Province of Bozen-Bolzano launched a call for applications regarding refunds of article processing charges. Researchers working at unibz who intent to publish an article in JCR-listed journals (last year Q1 and Q2 quartile!) can submit applications through the Library.
Please note that in order to apply for Province OA funding, researchers must cover publication costs in advance with the "fondo personale/persönlicher Fond" or other unibz funds.
Publication and invoice date cannot be prior to the date of submission of the funding application.
