Open Access Publication Fund
The Open Access publication fund of the JLU takes over article processing charges, that are demanded from the authors by some Open Access journals (e.g. PLoS, BioMedCentral,...).
The publication fund was founded in spring 2011 and has been financially supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) since November, 2011. The application the JLU filed in the context of the funding priority programm "Open Access Publizieren" was granted again by the DFG in October, 2017. Within the framework of the DFG research funding, article processing charges can be halfly paid by the fund.
