The University Library and key campus partners have started a fund to support the publication of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis scholarship in peer-reviewed open access journals. A pilot program that encourages diverse participation across schools on the campus will make $47,000 available to IUPUI faculty over the next two years.
The IUPUI Open Access Fund will underwrite reasonable publication charges for articles published in fee-based, peer-reviewed journals that are openly accessible. This fund addresses changes in scholarly communications while increasing the impact of and access to scholarship created by IUPUI faculty. Key campus stakeholders, including the IUPUI University Library, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, IU School of Dentistry and the Robert H. McKinney School of Law, are providing the financial backing for the fund.
Administration of the open access fund will be facilitated by University Library on a first-come, first-served basis, provided the proposed journal meets certain requirements. The venue of publication must be an established open access journal, that is, a journal that does not charge readers or their institutions for unfettered access to the peer-reviewed articles that it publishes.
“Open access makes scholarship freely available to everyone in the world rather than restricting it to those with access to libraries with large budgets,” said David Lewis, dean of the University Library and assistant vice president for digital scholarly communications for Indiana University. “For the scholar, it increases the impact of their work, and this in turn increases their standing in the academy.”
As an added service, the IUPUI University Library will place a copy of funded articles in the IUPUIScholarWorks repository. The placement of an article in the repository helps build the collection of IUPUI–authored publications, supports the self-archiving arm of the open access movement, and gives the article an added element of preservation and discoverability.
More information about eligibility and a link to the application process are available on the University Library website.
