Under certain circumstances the Open Access funding of your publication is provided by funding agencies like the FWF or the IST Austria Open Access Fund.

Besides these opportunities IST Austria Library negotiates agreements with publishers to enable publishing Open Access without additional costs for authors at IST Austria.
