Plan S

As of 1st October, 2018

Due to limited funds remaining unspent/uncommitted from the RCUK Block Grant we can currently only consider paying APCs for:

* Fully open access journals

* Journals which do not offer a compliant green open access option

For further details, please see the full distribution notice.

If publishing in a Sage or Springer journal please get in touch for specific details about these publishers.

Details of the RCUK Open Access Policy and how to access APC funding can be found here.
