JH Libraries Open Access Promotion Fund

Way back in October, 2012, during Open Access Week, the Scholarly Communications Group announced an initiative to help JHU authors publish their articles in Open Access journals.

Now we need your help (yes, you!) to spread the word. Only 9 savvy and knowledgeable JHU authors have received money from the JH Libraries Open Access Promotion Fund. There should be more! Authors supported by NIH grants HAVE to make sure their articles are freely available to all within 12 months of publication.

The awardees (so far) are:

If you publish in a fully Open Access journal that requires you, the author, to pay, then we can reimburse you. It's very easy. The form is online here.

So spread the word! And help us truly make JHU a place of Knowledge for the World.
