Open Access book publications

Making research public

The SNSF finances the publication of scientific books that are freely accessible without limitations or delays (Gold Open Access). Researchers have the option to publish a printed book at the same time as the OA version.

Peer-reviewed monographs and anthologies qualify for funding, whether they result from an SNSF-funded project or not. The costs for publishing services with regard to quality control, book production and distribution are covered by a book processing charge (BPC).
