UC Davis Open Access Fund pilot (UCD-OAF) supports
Academic Senate, Academic Federation members, faculty, post-docs, residents, fellows, and graduate students
who want to make their journal articles free to all readers immediately upon publication.
UCD-OAF provides Davis authors reimbursement up to $1000/article for open access fees for those publishing in full open access journals (journals in which all articles are published open access)
The fund is intended to subsidize reasonable open access publishing charges for researchers when funds are otherwise unavailable. Eligible charges include article processing fees for fully open access journals.
The California Digital Library and UC Davis University Library are providing the funds in order to support UCD authors interested in reshaping models of scholarly publishing.
The University Library will track how the funds are spent, and the success and sustainability of the pilot will be evaluated.
The chief goals of the program include fostering greater dissemination of the work of University of California, Davis scholars and encouraging author control of copyright.
