New fund for Open Access Books that result from NWO projects

11 June 2020

NWO’s new fund will help pay the costs of your open-access, peer-reviewed academic book if it is the result of an NWO-funded research project and published by an academic publisher. You can apply now if you are a project leader or a co-applicant of an awarded NWO research project that ended no longer than five years ago. Per research project, a maximum of € 10,000 is available. 

You can apply when there is a publishing contract with the publisher, and when your peer-reviewed manuscript is ready to be put into production by the publisher. NWO intends to honour all applications that meet the criteria as long as the annual budget of initially €500.000,- is sufficient. 

For more information and the application form, please visit NWO’s page on this Open Access Book Publication Fund.
