Funding Still Available: One-University Open Access Fund for Year 1

Friday, January 4, 2013

Are you a University of Kansas faculty, staff or graduate student? Do you write and publish articles? Do you want to publish with an open access (OA) publisher but lack funding support to help you pay the charges? The One University Open Access fund was established to pay article processing charges on your behalf.  It is not too late to apply for funding in this first year of a two-year pilot.

Of the $25,000 provided, there remains approximately $6000. Once this amount is committed, the OA fund account will be deactivated until Fall 2013 when the second year of the two-year pilot begins with the remaining $25,000.  See the OA Fund website for more information regarding criteria to apply for funding and to complete the request form.

The One University OA Fund is intended to assist those who have not received grant funding. Those applying for grants should request funding for article processing charges in order to publish the results of their research in an open access journal.

For questions about our OA fund, please contact authorsfund@ku.edu.
