Articles by CERN authors not covered by any other arrangement

Articles with at least one CERN author and that are not covered by any other arrangement or grant funding can still be eligible for central coverage of the Open Access fees under certain conditions: 

  • The author needs to contact @email in advance of the submission to confirm the eligibility for central coverage for the Open Access fees and for the Scientific Information Service to start the administrative procedure (such as generating a purchase order).
  • In the exceptional circumstances of articles with  Open Access fees higher than CHF 4,000, specific justification is required and authorization for the expense must be granted by the Director of Research & Computing. The same applies to special issues coordinated or authored by CERN resulting in high publishing costs for CERN, editors of such special issues should submit a specific justification and request for approval before organising such issues.  

In case of question, please use the Author OA Guide or contact @email.
