Brandeis Open Access Fund Description
BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY LTS OPEN ACCESS FUND
The purpose of the Brandeis University LTS Open Access Fund is to extend LTS’s support of scholarly publishing to faculty, staff, and students in established scholarly journals that are not supported through subscriptions. Providing the requirements are met, LTS will provide 100% of the funding per article.
All aspects of this policy, including the parameters of reimbursement, will be reviewed annually in light of our experience and external factors.
LTS funding is available to faculty, staff and students. Only one author per article may apply.
Funding is available for open access journals that do not charge a fee for institutions, libraries or readers for access to the content, and do not have an embargo period for access. This includes:
- Members of the Open Access Scholarly Publishing Association (OASPA)
- All Journals in the Directory of Open Access Journals that allow author to retain distribution rights.
- Hybrid journals that allow authors to retain distribution rights.
Only those fees associated with open access publishing are eligible for support. Costs for reprints, color illustration fees, non-open access page charges, administrative charges and other fees are not supported.
Articles whose underlying research was funded by grants that allow funds to be used for open access fees are not eligible for funding.
MAXIMUM SUPPORT LIMITS:
In order to include as many authors as possible while covering typical costs LTS will support 100% of the supported charges with a limit of $3000.00
Disbursement is based on a first come first served basis, provided all guidelines are met.
This fund is part of the LTS commitment to support open access, which also includes the management of the Brandeis Institutional Repository (BIR). Acceptance of open access funds requires submission of the supported article to the BIR within three months of publications.
