Funding Support


Brill supports the Open Access ambitions of authors, editors, and societies by offering various types of funding support. Since the landscape of Open Access funding can be daunting to navigate, it is our aim to

  • Target the right funding for a project;
  • Simplify the process;
  • Support the application;
  • Guide authors, editors and societies at every step.
