Publication grants are aimed at researchers in Switzerland who wish to publish research results for an academic public. Only work of high scientific quality is supported.
The SNSF finances digital book publications that are made freely accessible no later than 24 months after initial publication (see open access policy of the SNSF). Researchers are free to publish a printed book in parallel with the digital version.
The provisions applicable to publication funding as of 1 July 2014 are set out in Clauses 3.5, 3.6 and 5 of the General implementation regulations for the Funding Regulations of the SNSF.
