Library Open Access Publication Fund: important notice

Dear Colleagues


Please take note of the following announcement that was posted on the OAP Fund website this morning:



27 January 2017

A limited amount has been made available for an interim period for the funding of articles to be published in non-BMC (BioMed Central) journals. Applications for funding are therefore accepted again. The Open Access Publication Fund policy will apply to all applications, with the following additional provisions:

  • Only 50% of the APCs for SU-authors will be funded.
  • Invoices should be paid first and refunds may be claimed after payment.
  • All refunds will require funding approval prior to refunds being paid out. Download the pdf form, complete and return to the contact person below. Please allow 5 work days for the assessment of your application.

BMC applications will continue to be dealt with as before.
