Publishing open access articles in subscription journals (hybrid open access) incurs double the costs, as the publishing companies charge publication fees to authors and subscription fees to institutions. 

TU Wien Bibliothek is negotiating open access components more and more frequently and concludes what are known as transformative agreements with publishing houses. This provides members of TU Wien with the opportunity of making their publications freely accessible around the world in established journals as soon as they are published. Invoicing is conducted centrally by TU Wien Bibliothek. However, outside the publisher agreements specified below, the library does not assume any costs for hybrid open access, due to cost issues.

Requirements for funding

  1. The submitting/corresponding author is a member of TU Wien and is responsible for payment of the publication fee. If there are several corresponding authors, the TU Wien corresponding author has to be the submitting author.
  2. Publication is subject to an open licence e.g. in the form of a Creative Commons licence. The journal must apply open licences and display them correctly.
  3. Financing by TU Wien Bibliothek must be mentioned in the acknowledgements. We would recommend the following wording: "The authors acknowledge TU Wien Bibliothek for financial support through its Open Access Funding Programme."
