Open Access Publishing Fund - Now accepting applications

The Open Access (OA) Publishing Fund was established by Campbell Library to support Rowan tenure-track and tenured faculty. at the Glassboro campus to publish in eligible, credible peer-reviewed open access publications (journals, books and datasets) when no alternative funding is available. Some open access publications charge a publication fee or an Article Processing Charge (APC) from authors. The Campbell Library piloted this fund in FY 2017-2018 to help offset (some of) the cost of APC. The fund has been established at a total of $20,000 of available support to authors, and will be distributed on a rolling basis for a third year during FY 2020.

Rowan University with its recently awarded status as a research university provides Rowan community unique opportunities to expand their research and publications and the Rowan University Libraries are committed to support such opportunities. The goal of this fund is also to assist Rowan authors to explore new digital publishing models across various disciplines.
