  • Name of the journal/the publisher
  • Name and email of the corresponding author (if this is not you)
  • Title of the publication
  • Estimated costs

2) Inform GFI administration how the publication costs will be covered:

  • Article Processing Charge (APC) for open access publications are covered by the UiB library. To obtain these funds you have to send a formal application to https://www.uib.no/en/ub/79537/publication-fund-open-access-university-bergen. Please inform GFI administration as soon as you got these funds granted (happens usually within a few days).
  • Publication costs may be covered by your research project. Please check eligibility with your project economist. If publication costs are eligible to be covered by your project, please inform GFI administration about the name and PA number of your project.
