APC Decision Flowchart

Does your funding agency require open access? If yes, does agreement provide open access immediately or within terms? If no, email for help meeting requirements. If yes, don't pay article processing charge. If agency does not require open access, have you submitted your manuscript? If no, seek alternative funding or alternative models such as self archiving. If yes, consider withdrawing and send to journal that allows open access, or accept that your manuscript will not be published open access.
