Baylor Libraries Announce New Fund to Support Faculty Submissions to Open Access Publications

Jan. 24, 2018

The Baylor University Libraries have set aside funds for a pilot program that will fund the publication of Baylor scholarship in peer-reviewed, open access publications. This fund will be used to help cover the cost of author publication charges (APCs) and serve as an incentive to encourage researchers to publish in high quality, open access publications, thereby fostering broader public access to the work of Baylor scholars.

This pilot will run from spring 2018 through spring 2019 or until the funds are depleted. The pilot will be evaluated and if deemed successful, it will be continued. The funds are available to any current Baylor University faculty (tenure-line or full-time permanent lecturer or academic professional) who does not have other sources of funds to pay author publication charges.
