Graduate Student Open Access Publishing Fund

Graduate Student Open Access Publishing Fund

This fund is available to full-time graduate students in the Schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering. Applicants are limited to one award per calendar year. Funding support will cover the following portions of an author's submission fee:

  • For journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals or DOAJ-type journals (i.e., true open access journals): 100% of the open access author fee up to $3000
  • Reimbursement will cover only direct costs for open access publication (not the cost of reprints, color illustration fees, non-OA page charges, web hosting for self-archiving, etc.)
Authors with funding designated to cover publication costs such as author fees from grants, contracts, or other institutional funds (e.g., FRAC for faculty co-authors) are asked to use those funds first and to allow others to share in the benefit of open publications.

As a condition of the award, a copy of the funded publication must be placed in the Tufts Digital Library (via Mira).
