Open Access Pilot Initiative

Open Access journals provide free and unrestricted access to articles and many have also streamlined the review and publication process. This decreases time from discovery to dissemination and greatly broadens readership within and across disciplines. In addition, many Open Access journals provide real-time metrics of article views, citations, and social-media shares, providing faculty with insights into the impact of their work.

The Office of the Vice President for Research has set aside funds for faculty to offset the journal’s publication fees. Funds are limited and this initiative is based on 'first come, first served' until the funds are exhausted.
