What if the Article Processing Charges for a fully Open Access journal are higher than €2,000?
For some journals the OA publication fees may exceed the funding cap set by the Pilot. In this case, researchers may claim the maximum available funding from the Pilot and consider using other funds to cover the remainder. A specific invoicing procedure will need to be applied in this case, either by having the invoice split between the Pilot (€2,000) and the institution, or by paying for the full APC fee upfront from the institution and issuing a €2,000 reimbursement invoice to OpenAIRE (see an example reimbursement invoice here).
Invoices issued to Athena Research Centre should not bear any VAT charges, so it's very important to always include ARC's VAT number in them: EL999723442.
