UCSB Open Access Fund Pilot Program

The UCSB Open Access Fund Pilot Program supports UCSB authors who want to make their research free to all readers immediately upon publication.  Eligible authors will be reimbursed up to $3000 for open access publishing fees in scholarly peer reviewed fully open access publications listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals, and hybrid journals (subscription journals with an open access option) that offer publication fee discounts to UC authors via institutional memberships and licensing agreements.

The program is administered by the UCSB Library and supported by the California Digital Library and UCSB Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor.
