Bond University academic staff can apply for Article Processing Charge (APC) support for publication of a research article in a peer reviewed Gold Open Access Journal. APC requests must also meet the required eligibility criteria set out below.
APC requests should be lodged with Library Services for funding approval assessment prior to submission of the article to an OA journal. This assists Library Services with budget management and allows authors to submit with knowledge that funds will be available, or not, if their article is accepted for publication.
Requests for APC funding are assessed against the following eligibility criteria:
Bond authors should send the completed APC Request Form together with a copy of the submitted paper to the Manager, Scholarly Publications & Copyright in Library Services.
Articles being assessed for APC support must meet the ERA definition of research:
The creation of new knowledge and/or the use of existing knowledge in a new and creative way so as to generate new concepts, methodologies, inventions and understandings. This could include synthesis and analysis of previous research to the extent that it is new and creative.
The Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) is administered by the Australian Research Council. This national research evaluation framework identifies and promotes quality research activity and outputs in higher education institutions throughout Australia.
Where research data is to be made available to accompany a research publication the authors can have a Dataset record in the institutional repository (Pure) Datasets collection. Please contact the Manager, Scholarly Publications & Copyright in Library Services for further information and assistance.
