Request Funding to Publish OA
Public access mandates require open access to publications and data arising from federal funding. Many funding agencies allow grant funds to be used to pay open access publishing fees called Article Processing Charges (APCs). Researchers who want to publish open access but do not have such grants are at a disadvantage. Carnegie Mellon University Libraries:
- Provide financial support to pay APCs in high quality open access journals and selected hybrid journals.
- Have site licenses and memberships that give CMU authors a discount on APCs.
- Will pay CMU authors' lifetime memberships in PeerJ.
