Notes

Abstract: The open access (OA) movement has led to a rethinking and restructuring of traditional publishing funding models. A growing number of OA journals require authors to pay an article processing charge (APC) in order to have their articles published in their journal. In addition, hybrid journals (i.e. traditional, subscription-based journals), are beginning to offer the option to make an article OA if authors pay an APC. This practice of charging an additional APC in order to provide open accessibility to articles is seen by many publishers as a transitional method from subscription-based models to more inclusive models of funding to incorporate OA initiatives. In response to the increasing number of journals charging APCs that authors are responsible for paying in order to have open accessibility to their work, a growing number of universities are creating OA funds to help cover all or a portion of the costs. This paper illustrates the findings of this research and identifies emerging best practices among universities that have implemented an OA fund.
