  • Provide personalized information on OA funds that may be available
  • Direct you to the OA funding co-ordinator at your institution or funding body
  • Supply you with information for your OA funding application
  • Help you demonstrate the benefits of OA to support your application
  • Give personalized advice about the funding application process for your institution or funding body
  • Provide advice about compliance with funders' and institutions' OA policies

For further advice on the funding available to you and guidance in approaching funders and institutions, please contact info@springeropen.com.
