Apply for Open Access Publishing Funds

Current UA faculty, lecturers, post-docs, and students can request up to $3,000 to support publishing in fully open access journals that meet stated criteria for the Open Access Fund. Hybrid open access journals are ineligible for funding. If you are interested in submitting to a journal and want to know if the journal meets criteria for funding, contact us at

Awards will be pro-rated for UA authors only; exceptions may be granted if the primary/lead author is from the UA.

You cannot have other funding already covering your fees (e.g. grants, contract, gifts.)
