The HSHSL’s Open Access Publishing Fund is designed to improve access to research produced at UMB and to promote publishing by early-career researchers.
So far, the fund has granted awards to nine UMB researchers. They represent all of the schools the HSHSL supports – Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Social Work – and include students, post docs and assistant professors.
The fund will reimburse 50% of the cost of article processing charges for Open Access (OA) journals up to a maximum of $3,000 for early-career researchers. The budget for this pilot project is limited. Reimbursements will be made on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted. We can only reimburse UMB accounts. Currently we are unable to transfer money to individuals or UMB Foundation accounts.
