KU Open Funding

How can this tool be used?


The KU Open Funding tool can be used to find the right publisher for your publication needs.
By filtering the criteria and demands for your title you can see, which publisher meets the requirements the best.

 

How does it work?

1. Publishers insert their offers and publication specifications into the KU portal
2. Institutions can deposit an amount for BPC funding with KU
3. The researcher selects his best offer by filtering the criteria using the BPC Calculator
4. Once he/she has chosen an offer, the publisher is being payed by KU with the deposited funds
