Open access


Researchers financed by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond are to publish their results using open access, meaning openly available online.

You can apply for support for open access from RJ if:

  • you have/have had support from RJ from the funding call RJ Project or RJ Sabbatical
  • your funding was granted until 2019
  • you submitted your final report no later than 5 years ago
  • the costs you apply for are reasonable
  • you follow RJ:s guidelines for open access.

Send an application in word format to the research manager in charge. The application should include the following:

  • The project's reference number
  • Current grant administrator
  • Brief description of what you are seeking funding for (for example scientific article, monograph)
  • Brief description of how peer review will be conducted
  • Link to/information about the publisher
  • Information about which license will be used, if different licenses are used (for example for illustrations and texts), please state this
  • Information about what type of open access you are seeking funding for (gold, green or hybrid)
  • Possible embargo time
  • The total amount applied for in Swedish kronor with specification for each sub-amount, including any indirect costs (calculated according to the model used by the grant administrator).

  • For all other research support, we use our own model for calculating indirect costs and costs of premises.
