Open Access Fund

The SU Open Access Fund is used to support Stellenbosch University researchers publishing in open access journals. This may include:

  • Subsiding author fees for publishing in open access journals.
  • Taking institutional memberships with Open Access publishers such as BioMed Central (BMC) and Public Library of Science (PLoS). Institutional membership endorses open access publishing and allows for the subsidising of author fees of Stellenbosch University researchers publishing in these journals.
  • Subsidising author fees for publishing in regular journals where an additional fee is required to allow open access to an author’s published article.

In order to apply for funding assistance from the fund, please complete the funding application form.

About COPE

COPE provides advice to editors and publishers on all aspects of publication ethics and, in particular, how to handle cases of research and publication misconduct. It also provides a forum for its members to discuss individual cases (meeting four times a year in the UK and once a year in North America). COPE does not investigate individual cases but encourages editors to ensure that cases are investigated by the appropriate authorities (usually a research institution or employer).
