The Open Access (OA) Publishing Fund was recently established by the Campbell Library to support Rowan University full time tenured or tenure-track faculty at the Glassboro campus to publish in eligible, credible peer-reviewed open access publications (journals, books and datasets) when no alternative funding is available. Some open access publications charge a publication fee or an Article Processing Charge (APC) from authors. The Campbell Library will be piloting this fund in FY 2017-2018 to help offset some of the cost of APC. The fund has been established at a total of $20,000 of available support to authors. The application process opened on September 1, 2017, and funds will be distributed on a rolling basis during FY 2017-2018.
Rowan University, with its recently awarded status as a research university, provides the Rowan community unique opportunities to expand their research and publications and the Rowan University Libraries are committed to support such opportunities. The goal of this fund is also to assist Rowan authors in exploring new digital publishing models across various disciplines.
