Open Access: Open Access Fund

A Guide to Open Access. What is it ? Why is it important ?

Applying for Funds

One way Van Wylen Library backs up its commitment to furthering open access to scholarly communication is by maintaining a small fund to offset the costs of article processing fees. Hope faculty can apply for funding (limit: $1500 per article) by submitting a copy of their acceptance letter and a pre-print copy of their paper for inclusion in our institutional repository.

n.b. This fund may only be used to offset author fees for article publication in an open access journal. We will not support paying fees to publish in subscription journals.

These funding requests should be sent to If we are able to fund your request, we will transfer the funds to your departmental account.
