The complete guidelines for financial support for the publication of articles in Open Access journals.
Financial support for publication of Open Access books
Only the author of a monograph or the editor of an anthology affiliated to the University of Agder as an employee or a PhD candidate may apply for support.
The entire monograph/anthology must be published under conditions of one of the Creative Commons licenses. Funding is not granted for the purchase of individual articles/chapters in anthologies that are not fully available (hybrid Open Access).
The publisher must be approved as level 1 or level 2 publishing channel in the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers.
Predatory journals are journals that claim to be Open Access journals with the high-quality peer-review process and scientific content. These journals require a publishing fee, but do not conduct peer-review, or provide peer-review of such poor quality that it does not give any scientific value.
