FP7 Open Access Pilot

openaireAre you are publishing from a closed FP7 project?  If so a pilot Open Access scheme may be able to provide monies to make those publications Open Access via the Gold route.

Applications should be made at point of acceptance with the publisher, but reimbursements can be made for Open Access charges already paid for eligible publications.

The EU/OpenAIRE pilot allows you to claim:

  • Up to €2,000 per article, €6,000 for monographs.
  • Up to three publications per project (you may need to check with the project lead which publications should apply for the funding).

You are eligible for funds if:

  • The project finished after 1st January 2014.
  • The article is published in a fully Open Access journal i.e. not a hybrid OA journal. (Longer form publications are also be eligible for funding).

OpenAIRE have produced a useful checklist on the service: GoldOAPilot_Checklist_2016.

A list of current OU FP7 projects that are eligible for the funds is available: Closed OU FP7 Projects eligible for Open Access funding via the OpenAIRE pilot.

Applications for the funds should be made via the online central service.
