The Ohio State University Open Access Fund pilot provides funding to OSU authors (faculty members, staff, and students) who wish to publish their work in peer-reviewed, Open Access journals that charge author fees. Beginning October 20, 2014, the Fund provides awards of up to $1000/article, which will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis for publications that meet the eligibility criteria.
Members of the OSU community can apply for funds upon acceptance of their article by completing the online application form available October 20, 2014.
As a pilot, the project will continue until funds are exhausted, at which point all aspects of the project will be analyzed and reviewed. We welcome comments from the OSU community about the pilot Fund.
The Ohio State University Open Access Fund pilot is funded jointly by The Ohio State University Libraries ($10,000) and the Health Sciences Library ($10,000), and is coordinated by the University Libraries’ Digital Content Services Department. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
