Open access fees for 2019 reported to OpenAPC


TU Darmstadt has reported its expenses for Open Access for the year 2019 to the OpenAPC initiative.

In order to make fees for Open Access journal articles (the so-called article processing charges APC) comparable and to create a data basis for OA transformation, OpenAPC collects and publishes the publication fees paid by universities and research institutions.

In 2019, the OA funds of TU Darmstadt supported 72 publications with a total of about 110,000 €. This means that the number of sponsored journal articles doubled compared to 2017.

Costs from the DEAL-Wiley transformation contract could not yet be considered for 2019, but will be reported as soon as the fees for articles in Wiley hybrid journals have been calculated.

The current overview with publisher, department and DOI can also be found on the website for the OA-publication funds (co-funded by DFG).
