There are a number of terms and conditions attached to this scheme, so please ensure you read through the policy in total before applying. Read more about the full scheme here. Please also note that requests for both ‘revise and resubmit’ and ‘publication’ payments will be assessed by the Associate Dean for Research, Andrew Brown who is the final arbiter of the incentive scheme.

Journal submission fees fund

The Submission Fees Scheme is aimed to support faculty members to publish their work in journals which demand a fee to review submissions. Financial support is now available when faculty submit to ABS4 and ABS4* journals.

Initial submission fees should be paid by faculty members (k account or the research portion of the conference fund can be used for this) and should this lead to a revise and resubmit, this submission fee can be reimbursed via an application to the Research Office. Future submissions throughout the revise and resubmit process can then be claimed for. Please click here to access the full policy.
