Open Access Publishing

Since 2014, the publication fund has been used to finance author fees in open access journals for researchers from all disciplines. By setting up the publication fund, the university's researchers are given the opportunity to publish in renowned open access journals and thus make their research results freely accessible to everyone worldwide.
The Publication Fund was financially supported from 2014 2019 by DFG funding as part of the "Open Access Publishing" program. Leipzig University provides its own contribution. UBL manages the fund, checks the criteria defined by the DFG and advises researchers on open access publishing options.
The publications supported by the fund are published via the OpenAPC platform, including cost information.
