This FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot is typically asking for a funding request to be submitted upon manuscript acceptance. However, in cases where the final acceptance date may be very close to the limit of the project eligibility time-window it may be possible to submit a funding request a bit earlier so that we'll be able to take the invoice when it's made available upon final manuscript acceptance even if it's a bit beyond
the 2-year deadline for the project eligibility. This should always be checked with the coordination of the initiative at postgrantpilotinfo [at], and we will always ask for the 'accepted pending minor revisions' notification to be shared with us before agreeing to take a funding request.
