FET fund for open access publishing launched

architecture-buildings-business-331990On 1st August, FET launched an open access fund for their researchers. This allows UWE  Bristol authors of high quality articles to apply for funding to make their work immediately open access on publication via the journal’s website (gold open access).

If you wish to publish an article in an open access journal, the first step is to find out about the reputation of the journal and the likely cost of publishing. It is advisable to seek out the highest quality journal that you think will accept your work. There is more advice on the library research support webpages.

Having decided on the journal and submitted your article, you should apply to the Library for funding before a decision is made about acceptance. Having an article already accepted for publication is not sufficient reason for the University to fund publication.

For more information about this scheme contact lib.rke@uwe.ac.uk.
