Funding for GOLD open access

Fund held centrally in the Library. Imperial authors should apply for funding via Symplectic, see Applying for funding.

Covers fully open access journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

Covers peer-reviewed journal articles that are considered original research (other publication types can be considered upon request – please contact us at in advance of submission).

This fund is for Imperial College London staff or students with no other funding available for open access. NHS Trust staff are not eligible unless they also have a contract (including honorary) with Imperial College London. There should be an Imperial College London affiliation on the manuscript and, where possible, an acknowledgement that the Imperial College London Open Access Fund paid the open access fee.

We cannot pay page, colour or submission charges.
