Funding for OA books

This page lists research funders and institutions worldwide that fund open access book processing charges (BPCs). Sources of funding are listed by country, and links to each organisation’s open access funding and policy/information pages have been included where available. Click on the links below to view funders and institutions that make BPC funding available in each country.

Organisations have been listed only where they have specified that they have funding dedicated for open access books or that their open access funds extends beyond journal articles and may be used for peer-reviewed books and chapters. Where funders and institutions make open access funding for books available for chapters only, this has been indicated by an asterisk (*).

The information on this page is updated regularly, and reflects BPC funding sources to the best of our knowledge. To suggest updates or additions to this list, please contact us at info@springeropen.com.

To find out about funding for open access articles, see our list of organisations that provide funding for article processing charges (APCs).
