DFG supports Open Access at the H-BRS
In 2022, a publication fund for researchers was successfully established at H-BRS. As of January 1, 2023, the H-BRS now also belongs to the group of universities that are funded by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft e.V.) program "Open Access Publication Costs". The DFG's funding line aims to promote open access publications as the "publication form of the future". Through free access to scientific articles and research results, knowledge becomes visible and accessible to a broad audience.
DFG funding supports the financing of so-called Article Processing Charges (APCs), which are incurred when golden Open Access articles are published. For articles submitted to publishers/journals by publishers at the H-BRS since January 1, 2023, a financial contribution of 700 euros to cover publication costs is possible.
If you have any questions about scientific publications and how to apply, the library's Research Services team will be happy to advise you.
Further information and the required forms can be found on the Research Services web pages.
