OSU Libraries & Press Open Access Fund Report
[Abstract] OSU Libraries & Press initiated a pilot Open Access Fund in April 2015 that paid for open access article processing charges for OSU authors who met award criteria. The purpose of the fund was to heighten the visibility and accessibility of OSU scholarship and to support faculty and their student and post-doc co-authors, in all disciplines, who choose to publish in open access journals that require article processing charges. The fund was intended for authors who did not otherwise have access to funds for open access publishing fees. This report describes the purpose of the fund, who received funding, and potential next steps.
