Submitted by Sarah McGreer Hoyt

Are you interested in publishing in an open access journal, but not sure how you're going to pay for the fees? Authors submitting to peer-reviewed open access journals may qualify for funds from the K-State Open Access Publishing Fund.

"The hefty publication cost of many high prestige scientific journals can be a serious obstacle to publication," said Martha Mather, associate professor, Division of Biology, and a beneficiary of the K-State Open Access Publishing Fund . "I really appreciated the fund's grant to cover publication costs for a recent "Ecosphere" paper." 

The fund is jointly supported by the Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President, Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and K-State Libraries. Up to $3,000 per article is provided to pay publication fees in open-access journals that provide free, immediate, online access to the full text of research articles upon publication without restrictions.

K-State faculty members and researchers wishing to apply should visit the K-State Open Access Publishing Fund website.

Applications that comply with the eligibility criteria will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis. 

If you have questions or want to learn more about K-State Open Access Publishing Fund, contact the Center for the Advancement of Digital Scholarship at cads@k-state.edu or 785-532-7444.
