Application for assumption of costs for publication fees by the Schleswig-Holstein Open Access fund for junior researchers

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

I have earned my degree (master thesis or equivalent) not more than 10 years ago.  

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 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 Land Schleswig-Holstein within the funding programme Open Access Publikationsfonds".

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.
