SNSF: Publication grants

Publication grants are aimed at researchers in Switzerland who wish to publish research results for an academic public. Only work of high scientific quality is supported.
The SNSF finances digital book publications that are made freely accessible no later than 24 months after initial publication (see open access policy of the SNSF). Researchers are free to publish a printed book in parallel with the digital version.

Awarding of lump sums: The SNSF will contribute lump sums towards the production costs of a digital book publication. A maximum grant of CHF 10,000 can be requested for a basic digital OA publication. For doctoral theses and habilitations, a lump sum of CHF 6,000 is awarded. For a more elaborate digital OA publication a maximum of CHF 20,000 can be requested. These lump sums also cover editorial costs amounting to a maximum of CHF 3,000.
