Open Access Award

This grant is offered to support authors who otherwise would not be able to publish their research as Open Access articles. If successful, the grant will cover the article processing charges (APCs) often required by many journals and publications. Application is restricted to those publishing peer-reviewed articles directly related to maritime archaeological 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 Open Access funding.

The grant is restricted to those journals that are listed in the Scientific Journal Rankings (SJR) as Q1 or Q2 for Archaeology.

Unless there are exceptional circumstances only one Open Access Grant will be awarded per project.

The grant is only for Open Access fees – other charges such as colour, page and submission fees must be funded from elsewhere.

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 Open Access grant as soon as your article has been accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. If your application for the HFF Open Access grant is successful, the funds will be paid directly to the journal.
