Funding for Open Access publishing

The University of Vienna offers a broad variety of Open Access funding schemes to support authors financially. University affiliates can publish Open Access in over 14,000 journals:

Open Access publishing agreements: Contractual agreements for Open Access publishing exist with a number of publishers (among them Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, Taylor & Francis, SAGE, OUP, CUP, BMC, MDPI) .

Open Access publishing fund: If a journal is not included in one of the publishing agreements you can apply for funding for articles in Open Access journals.

Check if OA publishing in your desired journal can be centrally funded via our publishing agreements or our publishing fund:


FWF funding and EU funding: As a general rule, OA funding for publications resulting from FWF or EU projects is provided by the FWF or the EU, respectively. Funder OA policies apply.

Please note that there is currently no central funding for OA books. Funding is possible via the FWF programme for Stand-Alone Publications.
