Application for assumption of costs for publication fees by the DFG-Open Access fund of CAU

Please do not submit an application until your article has been accepted, that is, at the earliest after the "acceptance date".

I am a member of Kiel University (or UKSH Campus Kiel, Geomar, IPN).  

I am, as corresponding author, responsible for payment of publications fees.  

The full publication fees are not more than 2000 EUR total (i. e. net invoice amount plus 19% VAT, which must be additionally paid to the local tax office).   If the publication fees are expected to be more than 2000 EUR total, we can offer you support for negotiations with the publisher.

The article will be published exclusively in a full open access journal which is required to operate according to established subject-related quality-assurance models.   This means the journal is listed in the directory of open access journals (DOAJ -

I confirm that funding from other grants (this means third-party funding) is not possible.  

I am willing to point out the funding scheme according to which the publication was granted.   Phrasing could be e.g.: "We acknowledge financial support by DFG within the funding programme Open Access Publizieren".

My article is already accepted by the journal for publication.  

I confirm the correctness of my statements.  

If you cannot answer all questions with "Yes", it will not be possible to grant funding at first. In this case please fill in the application form anyway and complete additional information in the comments section so that we can examine further funding opportunities with you.

After submitting the application, you will quickly receive a permit or rejection of your application by e-mail.

The further procedure of assumption / reimbursement of costs will be explained to you in the approval of the application.
