Publishing Open Access journal articles: Procedures and conditions for support #

  1. The fund gives financial support to cover article processing charges (APC) in Open Access journals.
    • The journal must be registered in the Directory of Open Access Journals, DOAJ.
    • The journal must be at level 1 or level 2 in DBH´s register of publication channels.
    • Support is not granted for supplementary charges, colors, extra illustrations or volume.
    • The fund does not support hybrid journals (traditional journals with open choice).
  2. Only the corresponding author may apply for funding. “Corresponding author” refers to the author who is responsible for submission of the article and follow-up through the publishing process. The applicant must be affiliated with NTNU as an employee, a student, an externally funded research fellow or a visiting scholar. The NTNU affiliation must appear in the author information of the article.
  3. The fund does not normally provide support for articles that arise from externally funded projects that have funding to cover the costs of OA publishing. The Research Council of Norway has revised their guidelines and will through the STIM-OA funding cover half of the funds expenses for articles.
  4. The funded OA article must be registered in Cristin and the published version uploaded in Cristin immediately after publication in the journal.
  5. One can apply for funding at any time before the article is published.
  6. Rector adopts the guidelines and the NTNU University Library put them into effect.
    • The guidelines may be amended without prior notice, but changes will not be retroactive.
    • Decisions by the fund are final, with no opportunity for appeal.
