APC Payments

main content

If you believe that you will be eligible for funding to pay for the cost of an article processing charge (APC), please complete the following steps so that this can be confirmed and payment processed.


  • Email the completed spreadsheet to our Open Access Team expressing your interest in Gold Open Access

  • You will receive confirmation that your article can (or cannot) be paid for using the University's block grant funding within 3 working days

  • At the point of acceptance - and before the article is finalised and published - inform the publisher that you wish to pay for Gold Open Access

  • Our open access team can assist on copyright transfer and will deal with all financial aspects of the publishing process


The University has negotiated reduced rates for article processing charges for some our main publishers, including Wiley, IEEE and Elsevier. For further information, contact the team.
