BioMed Central Fund
In 2014 BUT became a member of BioMed Central. Authors from BUT have the opportunity of applying for the coverage of the publication fee of BioMed Central publishers.
The applicant of the grant must be:
- employee or student of BUT
- first or corresponding author
- The article has to be published in the journal which is scored according to the Methodology of Evaluation of Research Organizations and Evaluation of Finished Programmes (valid for years 2013 - 2015).
- The journal must be fully OA and not just hybrid.
- Author can apply only when there is no possibility of any other donation (grants, projects budget etc.)
- The supported article must be uploaded to the institutional repository (BUT Digital Library).
- The application must be send after the acceptation of the manuscript.
Our budget at BioMed central is 4000€ for 2014. Applications will be accepted until the money run out (on the base "first-come, first-served").
