Publication Fund of Potsdam University

In order to finance publication costs, many Open Access journals impose fees (article processing charges). In 2019, the University of Potsdam provides a Publication Fund of approximately 160.000 € to finance these charges. The Publication Fund is used to finance publication fees for articles in Open Access journals.

The Publication Fund is supported by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) within the framework of the Open Access Publishing program. Funds will be granted only if specified criteria are met.

Institution-specific criteria have been defined for the funding of the publication fees at Potsdam University. Before applying please check whether your request meets the Funding Criteria from the Publication Fund of Potsdam University. If the requirements are fullfilled, you can use the following link to submit an application for funding of publication costs for items in original Open Access journals:
