Open Access monograph funding request form

Please complete this form to request funding for an Open Access monograph. There is no set limit for each request, though you should be mindful of cost as it will be a factor considered as part of the request. Please note that funds are limited, so an assessment will be made by a small panel and the results communicated to you as soon as possible. Priority will be given to monographs which will be published before and submitted as part of the next REF. If funds are exhausted in one financial year, you may have to decide to publish without University funding for Open Access or to apply again in the next financial year.

Information provided via this form will be handled in accordance with our Privacy notice (PDF) and our Data retention and archive policies.
