VG Wort

 Science Promotion FundThe Science Promotion Fund of VG WORT GmbH is recognised as a non-profit organisation and pursues exclusively and directly charitable purposes.The aim of the fund is the statutory promotion of science and research.

Printing cost subsidies are granted for outstanding scientific works which have not been published by the time of approval and which could not be published without financial support due to high specialisation and small print runs. A committee made up of equal numbers of publishers and scientists decides on the allocation of grants according to strictly scientific criteria.
