The UAB Libraries Office of Scholarly Communication (OSC) is excited to announce the launch of its Article Processing Charge (APC) Fund pilot program to help UAB authors pay for open access APCs. The program, with the support of the UAB Provost and the Dean of Libraries, has initial funding of $10,000 for fiscal year 2022 – 23. The UAB Libraries will fund up to $2,500 per article for UAB authors on a first-come, first-served basis. The pilot program is open at all UAB faculty, staff, and students, and funding must be used on a Gold Open Access Journal.

More information about the pilot program and a link to the funding application can be found on the Open Access APC Fund Pilot Program page. Have questions? Contact Jeff Graveline, Associate Dean for Research and Scholarly Communication, at jgraveli@uab.edu.
