Nur "corresponding authors" sind förderberechtigt. "Corresponding author" ist jene Person, die gegenüber dem Verlag die offizielle Ansprechperson bezüglich des eingereichten Beitrags ist und als solche in der Publikation selbst ausgewiesen ist. Nicht förderberechtigt sind Co-Autor*innen, Erst- oder Letztautor*innen, die nicht gleichzeitig corresponding author sind. Das "corresponding author"-Prinzip wird als Förderkriterium international verwendet, um bei Artikeln mit mehreren Autor*innen aus unterschiedlichen Einrichtungen ein klares Entscheidungskriterium zu haben, welche Institution für die Kosten aufkommt. Damit wird auch zu einer fairen Kostenverteilung beigetragen.

2) University affiliates are defined in UG 2002 §94. Should you be a research grant holder please provide confirmation to that effect via e-mail.
