The University of Bayreuth supports the goals of OA ( Open Access Strategy of the University of Bayreuth
). As a support and incentive for authors, a publication fund is available which can pay for 100% of the APCs required for publication in an OA journal. Funding is available for publications in OA journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals
). In addition, funding is possible if experts from the respective scientific community recommend relevant OA journals or if the researchers have refuted the reservations of the OA commissioners of the university library with regard to journals that have not been quality-checked.
