SFU Open Access Fund to cover SpringerOpen Article Processing Charges

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Springer announced the launch of a suite of Open Access journals, the first issues scheduled for publication in 2011.  Authors will retain copyright under the Creative Commons Attribution License to the 12 peer reviewed journals in a range of disciplines.    Funded by author-side fees (article processing charges), the journal articles will be freely available online and can be freely redistributed and reused, complying with a growing number of  funding-agency open access mandates.

To obtain funding from SFU Library’s Open Access Fund to publish in SpringerOpen or other Open Access journals, visit the Library’s Scholarly Publishing website.
