Author workflow

T&F determines eligibility on the basis of submission metadata and notifies eligible authors of the possibility to publish OA at no cost during the publication process. The affiliation of the "corresponding author" to the University of Vienna will be checked by the Open Access Office.

In a small number of cases the automated workflow can only take place after an "Open Access Quote" has been filled in. It has to be made out to "University of Vienna" (e-mail address:

Only "corresponding authors" are eligible for funding. "Corresponding author" is the person the publisher is in contact with concerning the article and who is named as such in the publication itself. Co-authors, first authors or last authors are not eligible for funding unless they are also corresponding authors. The "corresponding author" principle is used internationally to determine which institution covers the charges in case an article is written by authors of different institutional backgrounds. It facilitates fair distribution of costs.

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.
