Q. Does the Open Access Authors Fund cover other fees such as page charges, illustration or colour fees?

Some publishers of OA content do not charge extra fees, nor do they incorporate them into OA fees. Others charge both as two distinct amounts. Because the fund is designed to cover OA fees alone and because double charging by publishers is discouraged, the Open Access Authors Fund will not support those publishers who charge extra fees. The OA fee will be paid; any other charges will not.
