FCT (Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology)

Gold Open Access

Elsevier and the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) have established an agreement to support Portuguese authors who wish to publish open access. The agreement provides researchers at eligible institutions with an incentive to publish their articles open access in applicable Elsevier journals. Authors who opt to publish their articles open access under the agreement will have a choice of two reuse licenses: CC-BY or CC-BY-NC-ND.


Green open access

FCT-funded authors can continue to choose to publish under the subscription model and self-archive their manuscript in line with Elsevier’s sharing policy.
