Submitting an application and more information

Would you like to make use of this fund for publishing in a Gold Open Access medium? Ask yourself:

  1. Is the APC already covered by an agreement between Erasmus University and the publisher? You can use the Journal browser to check whether this is the case for the journal of your choice.
  2. Does the research funder reimburse the costs of publication? In Horizon2020 costs are reimbursed during your project, but the costs should fit within your project budget.

If you have no other source of funding and you meet the conditions please apply for reimbursement. Do you have any questions about the Erasmus Open Access Fund? Then do not hesitate to contact Hans Brandhorst and Leonidas Pakos via
