Apply Now for UNLV Open Article Fund

UNLV faculty and graduate students are encouraged to apply for the UNLV Open Article Fund, a pilot project offed by University Libraries that is providing up to $30,000 in financial assistance to publish in open access journals.

University Libraries long has supported open access, providing free access to UNLV research through the institutional repository Digital Scholarship@UNLV.  The fund supports article processing charges for open access journals.

Sharing research through open access provides benefits for authors through greater reach and use of their works. The fund also helps UNLV by showcasing open scholarship published at the university, and making it available to potential students and faculty, the general public, lawmakers, non-profit organizations, small businesses, and anyone with an internet connection.

Melissa Bartshe, Courtney Coughenour, and Jennifer Pharr were the first UNLV faculty members to publish an article using the fund. That article, "Perceived Walkability, Social Capital, and Self-Reported Physical Activity in Las Vegas College Students," appeared in the journal Sustainability

University Libraries donors generously provided $10,000 to support the project. More information on eligibility requirements and the application are available online.
