Funds are available to offset the associated publishing fees.

Support is for 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.

The OA Fund 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 UC Davis University Library is providing the funds in order to support Davis authors interested in reshaping models of scholarly publishing

UC Davis, CDL to Lead Major Project to Build Open Access Financial Model

The University of California, Davis and the California Digital Library (CDL) will lead a major new project, with an $800,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, to help define the future of Open Access to scholarship.

Pay It Forward: Investigating a Sustainable Model of Open Access Article Processing Charges for Large North American Research Institutions is a year-long effort to study the implications of new funding models for scholarly communications, particularly the use of article processing charges, and determine their sustainability for research universities in the U.S. and Canada.The project partnership includes three major research libraries (Harvard University, Ohio State University and the University of British Columbia) as well as the ten University of California campuses.

The project will create a detailed, flexible, and publicly available financial model to help university administrators and librarians develop Open Access policies and strategies.
