Application for Gold Open Access fees: UKRI, Wellcome Trust, BHF, CRUK

Use this form to apply for Gold Open Access fees (sometimes called `article processing charges') for papers that are a result of, and acknowledge, funding from British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Wellcome Trust or UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

We will ask you for details of your paper, the Open Access fee, and your grant.

You should ideally apply here before submitting your paper. If you apply after your paper has been accepted, we cannot guarantee to pay the fee and you may be left with the invoice.

Please note that we only use the funding to cover open access fees.  We do not pay page or colour charges under any circumstances and you will need to find alternative funding for these.

The University of Leicester do not have an Institutional Open Access Fund.
