April 05, 2021
After allocating an additional $20,000, the Open Access Publishing Fund (OAPF) has disbursed its entire allocation for FY21. Created by a partnership with the library, Office of the Provost and Office of Research and Economic Development, the OAPF allocated $50,000 to support U of I authors in their efforts to publish in open access journals by paying article processing charges. In its third year, the OAPF funded 33 articles and supported 78 U of I researchers.
Since opening in July 2018, the OAPF has allocated $110,000 and funded 80 articles, with 67.5% of funded articles including more than one U of I-affiliated author. During the past three years, the OAPF has supported 143 U of I researchers, including faculty, staff and students across six colleges and 24 departments/programs/centers, Extension, the Idaho Geological Survey and two institutes. As articles are published, they will be added to the Funded Articles section of the OAPF website.
