Bond University academic staff and HDR students can apply for Article Processing Charge (APC) support for publication of a research article in a peer reviewed Gold Open Access Journal.
Research funding managed by Library Services may be available to pay Article Processing Charges (APCs) that meet the required criteria.
APC requests must be lodged at the time of submission of the article to a journal so that the request can be assessed for funding approval prior to acceptance of the article for publication.
Requests for APC funding are assessed against the following eligibility criteria (within budgetary limits):
Bond authors should send the completed APC Request Form together with a copy of the submitted paper to their Faculty Research Development Manager and 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.
