Funding open-access publications from completed FP7 projects

With the FP7 post-grant Open Access Pilot, the European Commission has set aside a total of EUR 4 million to fund open-access publications from FP7 projects that have already been completed.

A maximum of EUR 2,000 for articles, book chapters and conference papers, and EUR 6,000 for monographs can be applied for subject to the following conditions:

  • The FP7 project ended on 1 January 2013 or later
  • The publication costs are incurred after the completion of the project

We especially recommend this funding option for open-access books and open-access journals with which ETH-Bibliothek does not have an agreement on the funding of publication fees, such asNature CommunicationsorScientific Reports.

ETH-Bibliothek's E-Publishing Office takes care of the application process for members of ETH Zurich.
