Open Access Grants

The ESPA Directorate’s open access publication grants were launched originally in 2012 to increase the volume of high quality evidence published in open access journals by researchers within ESPA. The 2012 grant is closed.

It is ESPA's continued policy to encourage open access publications.

We have modified our Open Access Grant application criteria and form given the changes in open access policy across many UK universities. We continue to support open access and if you wish to apply please contact support [at] for an application form.
