The Open Access Publishing Fund of the Leibniz Association has updated its APC expenditures for the 2016 period.
Data is provided by Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB - German National Library of Science and Technology). TIB is operating the open access fund together with ZB MED (Leibniz Information Centre for Life Sciences) and ZBW (German National Library of Economics – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics).
For 2016, the publishing fund is funded by resources from the strategy fund of the Leibniz Association Executive Board in the amount of 200,000 €.
The new dataset covers additional publication fees for 14 articles covered by the fund in 2016.
Please note that APCs exceeding 2,000 EUR are shared between the fund and the corresponding Leibniz institution and that this data set only covers payments made via the central open access publishing fund.
