I have funds to pay an APC, how do I publish my work open access?

Funders may include an allocation to cover APCs, and some publisher agreements include them. If you have funds from another source to pay an APC, that’s great – and please remember to deposit the article in the repository as well.

Here are some handy tools to help you find the information you need:

  • Check your research funder’s open access policy using SHERPA/Juliet.
  • Check if the journal you want to publish in complies with your funder’s open access requirements using SHERPA/Fact.
  • Use SHERPA/RoMEO to find out your publisher’s policy on self-archiving articles in open access repositories and the web.
