Funding criteria for journal articles

In addition to the general funding criteria, other criteria are used to fund journal articles.

Besides the general funding criteria, the following criteria apply to the funding of journal articles (including replication studies, null results papers, registered reports, and papers based on data reuse or with citizen participation):

  • At the time of application, applicants are members of the WI and/or of WI subprojects run by network partners and are the submitting author or corresponding author.
  • The maximum cost of €2,000 net (excluding VAT) per article must not be exceeded.
  • The selected journal publishes all articles via open access routes immediately they appear.
  • The journal should be listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
  • Open access options for individual articles in subscription-based journals (known as hybrid open access) outside of transformation contracts, and articles in mirror/sister journals (open access versions of subscription-based journals) are not normally eligible for funding
