Open Access Publishing Fund Supports 46 Researchers Across Four Colleges in Second Year
February 26, 2020
The Open Access Publishing Fund (OAPF) has disbursed its entire allocation of funds for this FY20. Created by a partnership with the University of Idaho Library, Office of the Provost and Office of Research and Economic Development, the OAPF allocated $30,000 to support U of I authors in their efforts to publish in open access journals by paying article processing charges.
In its second year, the OAPF funded 24 articles and supported 46 U of I researchers. Since opening in July 2018, the OAPF has allocated $60,000 and funded 47 articles, with 60% of funded articles including more than one U of I-affiliated author. During the past two years, the OAPF has supported 86 U of I researchers across four colleges and 20 departments/programs, two centers, one institute and the Idaho Geological Survey. As articles are published, they will be added to the Funded Articles section of the OAPF website. Contact U of I-OAPF Fund Manager Jylisa Doney with questions.
