Many funders and research institutions have established funds to pay for article or book processing charges in open access journals and/or book publishers. You should find out what options exist at your institution or from your grant provider. If there is no open access funding available to you, find out if any of your co-authors have funds they can apply for.
If your research is funded by national research councils or international funding bodies, like the European Union (Horizon 2020), you may be able to get your article processing charge covered as a part of the grant. Check the guidelines for the grant, or the funder’s website.
Check SHERPA Juliet for information on individual funder´s requirement regarding Open Access.
