Do You Want to Publish in Open Access Journals?

Open access makes scholarly articles freely available to anyone, anywhere via the Internet. If you would like to join this growing trend by publishing in a peer-reviewed open access journal, you may be eligible to be reimbursed for a portion of the author fee through the UConn Libraries Open Access (OA) Author Fund.
Journals meeting the eligibility criteria are listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The funds are available to any UConn or UCHC faculty, post-doctoral researcher, staff member or graduate student author, but the applicant must be the corresponding author and must have a UConn or UCHC affiliation. The published article must also be made available in DigitalCommons@UConn, the University's institutional repository.
With one application already approved, the Libraries are encouraging other members of the campus community to consider making their scholarly work available to a broader audience through the Open Access Author Fund.
Reimbursement is up to $1,250 per article but the author must exhaust other funding avenues prior to applying to the OA fund. This fund is co-sponsored by the UConn Libraries, the UConn Health Center Library, and the Vice President for Research.
