Publication Fund / Publication Charges

Services offered by the Central Library

On 24 November 2015, the Board of Directors decided upon a new Open Access Strategy for Forschungszentrum Jülich. It favours gold open-access publications. From 1 January 2016, if an employee of Forschungszentrum Jülich is corresponding author, the publication charges will be paid for from the publication fund, which is administered by the Central Library (ZB). Exceptions are possible if the costs are not charged to the publication fund.


Costs of gold open-access publications are covered by ZB (publication fund).
Article processing charges (APC)These charges apply to the publication of articles in scientific journals.
The Central Library pays these charges for gold open-access publications.


Charges for subscription journals, including hybrid open access, will not paid for by ZB.
Page chargesSome publishers charge a fee per page of the publication. Other publishers charge extra per page if it exceeds the standard length, in addition to the article processing charge.
Colour ChargesAdditional high fees are often charged for printing images and illustrations in colour.
PDF file of the publicationThe publisher’s version of the article will not be covered.
Cover IllustrationsPublishers are increasingly suggesting that cover illustrations be commissioned to supplement articles. The ZB will not pay these fees. It has not been verified that cover illustrations lead to increased visibility for an article.
OffprintsThe charges for copies of an article in paper form will not be covered.
Hybrid open access feesPublishers charge fees to provide open access to individual articles published through the traditional publication process. The Central Library does not cover these charges.


ZB takes care of the orders and processing of invoices for publication charges, no matter whether the charges are covered by ZB or by the corresponding author’s cost centre. Make sure that you complete each step on the checklist provided (entitled ‘Publication Charges/Page Charges’).
Please use the most up-to-date versions of the forms required. FZJ-Intranet:
