Announcing the 5th installment of Enago’s Research Risk Assessment initiative, the survey aims to explore the author’s and researcher’s perspectives and their understanding of the funding opportunities within and beyond Open Access publishing. Further, it will study their opinion on the “Pay-to-Publish” mechanism.

We encourage all respondents to share their thoughts via this questionnaire, which is focused on the following points:
  • Awareness about the available funding opportunities in academia
  • Understanding the concerns related to Article Processing Charges (APCs) for Open Access (OA) publishing
  • Understanding the demographic perspective about funding and OA (based on region, education, income level, discipline, age group, profession, etc.)
  • Determining the challenges faced whilst applying for grants, especially to pay for publishing in OA journals
  • Predicting the repercussions and perceived limitations, drawbacks, and concerns related to APCs for OA publishing
  • Determining the repercussions of APCs on the advancement of science and its dissemination
  • Identifying potential solutions to overcome the challenges associated with “Pay-to-Publish”
