Open Access Publishing Fund Supports 51 Researchers Across Four Colleges in Pilot Year

March 04, 2019

The Open Access Publishing Fund (OAPF) disbursed its entire allocation of funds for this fiscal year, FY19. Created by a partnership with the University of Idaho Library, Office of the Provost and Office of Research and Economic Development, $30,000 was allocated to pay for article processing charges to support U of I authors in their efforts to publish in open access journals during the pilot year.

Since opening in July 2018, the OAPF funded 23 applications and supported a total of 51 University of Idaho researchers across four colleges and 13 departments, including one center and one institute. As articles are published, they will be added to the Funded Articles section of the OAPF website.

The University of Idaho Library enriches learning opportunities by building partnerships that support and advance research, scholarly and creative activity. The OAPF partnership exemplifies the values of the library and promotes a culture of learning and access.
