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.
Astrid van der Horst and Nancy R. Forde are among the first SFU authors to publish an article using SFU’s Open Access Fund, administered by the SFU Library.
van der Horst, A., & Forde, N. R. (2010). Power spectral analysis for optical trap stiffness calibration from high-speed camera position detection with limited bandwidth. Optics Express, 18(8), 7670-7677. doi:10.1364/OE.18.007670

Beginning February 2010 the SFU Library is pleased to administer a central fund to support SFU authors who publish in Open Access journals that charge Article Processing Charges.
Memberships or monthly invoicing arrangements are in place with these publishers:
* BioMed Central
* Public Library of Science
* Hindawi Publishing
SFU authors who are faculty, staff or graduate students are eligible to use the Central fund.
