New funds available to faculty and staff in support of Open Access publishing

Funds alleviate publication charges for fee-based Open Access journals

LUMCON will make funds available to in-house faculty and staff publishing scientific papers in open access journals. These funds will alleviate the cost of making LUMCON research freely available, because money should never be a barrier to accessing the results of scientific investigations.

In conjunction with Open Access Week 2018, LUMCON librarian John Conover put together a selection of previously-published open access research authored by LUMCON faculty in the past two years:
