Applications are now open for the Cal State East Bay OA Publishing Fund.
The University Libraries is pleased to introduce a new Open Access (OA) Publishing Fund for current faculty, students, and staff members at Cal State East Bay. The OA Publishing Fund is designed to increase the visibility and accessibility of the University's scholarship. It will support Cal State East Bay researchers who have limited access to funding sources, but would like to publish in open access journals that require author fees for accepted manuscripts. The primary goal of this program is to remove the financial barriers that prevent researchers from publishing in open access journals.
The University Libraries will only provide funds for articles that meet the following criteria:
Funding: This program is funded by the University Libraries. The Library provides a maximum of $1,500 per article and author, and up to $2,000 with a student co-author, per fiscal year (July 1 - June 30).
Author Eligibility: Current Cal State East Bay faculty, staff, and students are eligible to receive funds.
Timeline: Requests will be accepted up until May 15, 2022, or until funds are exhausted, whichever occurs first.
Note: The Library will not process requests for reimbursement. To receive funds, approved applicants will need to submit a publisher's invoice directly to the Library.
Please note that the form is closed when the funds are exhausted for the fiscal year.
