Open Access Journal Publication Fund (OAJPF) 

The URC Open Access Journal Publication Fund (OAJPF) has been established to support UCT researchers with the publication of their research output in open access journals. The Fund is intended to contribute to Article Processing Charges (APCs) for articles accepted in journals found on the Department of Higher Education and Training’s (DHET) list of accredited journals. The article must also adhere to the Publication Count guidelines(i.e. be original articles, research letters, research papers and review articles). 

Page Cost  

These grants are intended to contribute towards page costs of articles in journals accredited by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), or to provide a contribution to the publishing of a book that may earn DHET subsidy.

All applications for the URC Page Costs and the Open Access Journal Publication Fund (article processing charges) are submitted to the Research Office via UCT’s Research Portal on the electronic Research Administration (eRA) system
