Find out more about the CSP Charitable Trust's Open Access Award.
The CSP Charitable Trust’s Open Access Award covers the cost of up to four open-access publications in Physiotherapy Journal. One award is made per quarter and a maximum fund of £2,000 is available for each award.
To qualify for consideration for this award scheme, the first or senior author must be a CSP member.
Successful submissions will demonstrate high-impact content, as judged by the journal’s editorial board, and be supported by evidence or potential indicators of impact.
All submissions will undergo the journal’s usual peer-review and editorial processes, as defined in the journal’s Guide for Authors.
There is no separate process for applying for an Open Access Award. Elsevier will contact the CSPCT if a paper is selected for an award. The first or senior author must ensure they have declared that they are a CSP member, via the tick box in the submission system.
