To better enable and encourage UAB faculty, staff and students to consider Open Access publishing — or the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as needed — the Office of Scholarly Communication continues its Open Access APC Fund Program, launched in 2022. 

The program awards funding of up to $2,000 on a first-come, first-served basis to Blazers during the 2023-24 fiscal year who seek to publish their work in Gold Open Access publications, or ones that are permanently and freely available online and accessible to all; $20,000 total in funding is available for 2023-24. Financial support comes from the UAB Libraries, the UAB Heersink School of Medicine, and the UAB School of Health Professions.
