"The maximum funding amount for an article is 2000€ and 6000€ for a book.This funding cap has not been chosen arbitrary, and is in line with many international OA funding schemes.

If the invoice states another currency, the system will convert the amount to €

If the processing charge exceeds this amount, you are encouraged to notify your publisher about this funding scheme and ask for a discount to meet with this funding cap.

If a lowering of the fee is not possible, 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 and the institution, or by paying for the full fee upfront from the institution and issuing a reimbursement invoice limited to the cap to OpenAIRE. The submission dashboard offers the possiblity to indicate split funding.
