Funds are available to UMN authors from all campuses who have no other available funding, to cover the costs of making their publications available to the world. We believe that free online access to published research benefits authors, other researchers, the University, and many people around the world.
In order to be eligible for support, a work must be:
* A peer-reviewed journal article, scholarly monograph, conference proceeding, or data set
* Created by a University of Minnesota author (any faculty, researchers, post-docs, graduate students, or staff)
* Fully open and available immediately upon publication (no "hybrid" access, no time-delays)
* Already accepted for publication at the time of application for funding support
