The grant is intended to support authors who otherwise would not be able to publish their research as Open Access articles and will cover the article processing charges (APCs) often required by many journals and publications. It is restricted to those publishing peer-reviewed articles directly related to maritime archaeology research in the eastern Mediterranean.
HFF will only consider applications from authors who do not have eligible Open Access funding in their research award or whose institutions do not provide OA funding.
The grant is restricted to those journals that are listed in the Scientific Journal Rankings (SJR) as Q1 or Q2 for Archaeology.
The grant is only for Open Access fees – other charges such as colour, page and submission fees must be funded from elsewhere if applicable.
Articles must be published with a CC-BY licence (Creative Commons Attribution) and authors will be asked to acknowledge the support of HFF.
You should apply for an HFF OA grant as soon as your article has been accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
