Many institutions and research funders provide funds to support open access publications by their staff. Therefore, we ask that you contact them to cover the APC.
If you do not know about your institution’s or your funder’s policy on open access funding, please contact your departmental/faculty/grant administrators and institution library, as funds may be available to you.
Several other foundations, institutes, societies and associations offer publication grants (not exclusive to Open Access) based on subject relevance. Here are a few of them relevant to history, archaeology and material preservation and conservation.
This is not a comprehensive list. There are a lot of other opportunities around.
This list is updated every June and December.
For a list of universities that provide funds,please, see http://oad.simmons.edu/oadwiki/OA_journal_funds. Although this is a volunteer maintained wiki, it currently is the most comprehensive list. However, institutions that do not appear here might also have open access funds.
