BIH Open Access Publication Fund


Please note: The fund is closed.
Other option: Charité Publication Fund


To promote the publication in open access journals, the QUEST – BIH Center for Transforming Biomedical Research offers the payment of Open Access fees. The applications are processed according to the order in which they are received - until the fund is spent.

The costs for your Open Access publication can be paid by the QUEST Center if the following formal criteria are met:

  1. The publication has already been accepted by the publisher.
  2. The first, last or corresponding author of the publication is professor or "Privatdozent" at the Charité, leading researcher at the MDC or published with the BIH affiliation.
  3. The journal in which you have published is listed in the DOAJ Directory of Open Access Journals and is not a so-called hybrid journal.
  4. Your article is licensed under a Creative Commons license (preferably CC by) and can be used without restrictions.
  5. The publisher's invoice is addressed to the BIH.
