Through use of an open access author fund, York University Libraries directs a small portion of its collections budget to cover some author processing charges (APCs) for York researchers wishing to publish in open access journals. This fund is capped and no requests can be received until the following fiscal year once the annual allocation has been expended. While York University Libraries directly supports open access publishing via a number of investments and initiatives, our ability to support researchers with the costs incurred from publication in gold open access journals is limited and must be balanced against competing demands on our collections budget.
About the York University Libraries OA Author Fund
If you are not eligible to receive funding under the terms of this fund, you can still save on the costs of author processing charges by taking advantage of the various publisher discounts available to York authors through the Libraries.
