TU Darmstadt is promoting the publishing of members’ research results since 2017 in open access journals with publication funds. These funds can be used for article processing charges, if certain conditions are fulfilled. TU Darmstadt’s open access publication funds are co-financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). All promoted articles will be released by Darmstadt’s university and state library (ULB) as second publishing at TUprints, TU Darmstadt’s publication server.
What are the funding conditions for the OA-funds at TU Darmstadt?
1. Is the „corresponding author“ a current member of TU Darmstadt or has been one during the article’s submission/admission?
2. Is the article listed in the Directory of Open Access (DOAJ LINK)?
3. Is the article’s processing fee 2000 € max. incl. 19% taxes?
4. Have processing fees been invoiced 2017 or later?
Should you have been able to answer above questions with „yes“, please use our webform to request promotion for your article via OA-funds.
Upon unclarity we strongly advice contacting the digital publishing team to clarify your article’s eligibility and for possible assistance during discount negotiations with the publishers.
