The University of Greifswald offers various funding opportunities for Open Access publishing. One of the requirements for the funding is that you are the corresponding author responsible for paying the article processing fee (APC). You must also provide your affiliation details for the University or the University medicine.

Is my preferred journal eligible for funding?

Do you already know exactly where you want to publish and want to find out about funding opportunities?

The oa.finder provides detailed information about open access opportunities in over 55,000 journals as well as Greifswald University’s funding agreements.


If you have little or no funding available, you may search for cost-effective open access journals.

  • There is a list of free publishing opportunities via open access platin on the University Library website.
  • The University will cover the costs for articles in journals that are included in our transformative agreements, provided you do not have any third-party funding available.
  • APCs of up to 1,680 € (excl. 19% VAT) may be covered by our open access publication fund. You can filter by APCs in the oa.finder.
