Open Access Fund application form

Please apply for funding BEFORE you submit your article for publication so that we can advise you on funder compliance.

Funds can only be released where it is demonstrated that your funder requirements are met. Check funder requirements with SHERPA.

If you have already been accepted for publication, you will be asked to confirm that details of the output have been added to Symplectic, the University publications database. Find out how to add your output to Symplectic.

The open access fund only pays article processing charges where funding is acknowledged from the following:

  • British Heart Foundation
  • Cancer Research UK
  • UK Research and Innovation (UKRI: Research Councils)
  • Wellcome Trust

We will contact you with the result of your application and you will receive a PO number if successful. Please do not raise a SIPR. For more help please contact us.
