Support for Open Access publishing (Dean’s decision 11.12.2019)
The Faculty supports open access publishing in open access journals and books by covering the payment of publishing fees up to 2000 € per publication. From 2020 on, open access publishing in 'hybrid' publication channels is not supported anymore (except manuscripts submitted between 2018-19 to those hybrid journals to which Helsinki University Library had negotiated discounts).
The support is meant for all researchers working in the Faculty, either on salary or with a personal grant, including doctoral students. The researcher has to be the first author in the publication (or in a similar important position) to be eligible for the support. The costs of Open Access publishing should be primarily covered by research projects; the Faculty does not pay the charge if the researcher can pay it from his/her project.
