Apply for Open Access Publishing Funds

Please Note:

As the academic year draws to a close, the Libraries would like to report that the Open Access Publishing Fund has reached its budgetary limit for 2018-19. We are pleased to announce that the fund subsidized almost 70 publications across the disciplinary spectrum this year. Over 200 UA-affiliated authors received assistance, providing barrier-free access to their research and scholarship to readers around the world.

Unfortunately, funding for publications this academic year is no longer available.
