UC Now Paying For Open Access!

Staff Writer | The NIF Blog | October 30, 2012

Hot off the press, from the desk of the Chancellor we just received a note about open access publishing that I would like to celebrate and share.

“Beginning this week, the University of California campuses have launched a pilot open access fund for scholarly articles.  This fund will help offset open access publishing charges for authors who do not have grant funds available to cover them.  Eligible charges include Article Processing Charges (APCs) and Open Access (OA) fees for fully open access journals.  Funds from the pilot may not be used for color charges, page charges, illustration charges, or submission charges. Articles must be made freely available at the time of initial publication, without any embargo periods.”
