Grants for open access publications
Within the framework of the University of Andorra (UdA)’s commitment to promoting the free dissemination of knowledge, the UdA offers grants to its own teaching and research staff to enable them to publish research articles in open access scientific journals.
To obtain these grants, which are offered annually by the UdA Academic Board, journals must be included in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and must offer full access to their articles (journals that that adopt hybrid models are ineligible). For their part, applicants must form part of the UdA teaching and research staff and must be members of a research group at the University. (information in Catalan)

The University of Andorra offers predoctoral grants to promote research into subjects related to the areas of interest of its research groups.
On June 21, 2018 the UdA awarded a research staff in training grant to the doctoral student Blanca Carrera González. The grant enables her to complete her doctoral thesis within the framework of the Doctoral Programme in subjects related to the areas studied by the Interdisciplinary Research Group in Education and the technological studies area of the University of Andorra. The doctoral thesis is entitled “The initial training of teachers based on competence and multilingual training: a study of the case of the Bachelor’s Degree in Education Sciences at the University of Andorra” and is jointly directed by Montserrat Casanovas and Alexandra Saz.
The second grant for research staff in training was awarded in early 2022 to Pol Comellas Saenz for a doctoral thesis in the field of health promotion, within the framework of the Health Sciences and Health Services Research Group.
The third grant was awarded to Adoració Medina Albós, who is working in a doctoral thesis on the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the teaching of mathematics at the baccalaureate in Andorra, within the framework of the Interdisciplinary Research Group on Education (GRIE).
