Funding for Open Access Publishing

Library Open Access Publishing Fund

The Library Open Access Publishing Fund is an educational opportunity to increase Brock engagement in open access publishing. Researchers may apply for grants from the $15,000 fund to cover article processing charges (APCs) levied by some open access journals.

Application Form

The Library Open Access Publishing Fund is currently accepting applications. The 2020-21 fund will remain open until March 30, 2021, or until funds are expended, whichever comes first.

Open Access Memberships

The Library is pleased to support open access memberships which allow Brock researchers to publish in open access journals for a reduced fee – or for free:
