Learn from the Open Access Subvention Fund (OASF) manager how to get the library to pay the article processing charges (APCs) when your article is accepted by an OA journal that requires these fees. Since 2013 when Virginia Tech Libraries first made funds available, the OASF has grown to $150,000 to support articles published in scholarly OA journals. Everyone in the VT community—faculty, staff, and students, is eligible for support from the Libraries’ fund.
In this session we will review the OASF award guidelines, identify journal and publisher databases to help you determine if a journal meets the funding criteria, locate OA journals in your field, and discuss VT’s new open access policy (in effect as of July 1, 2021.
If there’s time we can also talk about the Libraries’ publishing services, including open textbooks, and book subvention opportunities.
