Queen’s receives annual block grants from The Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the Wellcome Trust and Charity Open Access Fund (COAF). These grants are given to the University to support the cost of Gold Open Access.
The open access team administers these block grants and funding is allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you want to avail of this funding and find out whether you meet the requirements please see here.
The Library has also subscribed to a number of prepayment and membership schemes to reduce the cost of open access article processing charges (APCs). For more details and the full list of membership deals that the library has to offer please see here
