The Henry Madden Library is pleased to announce that limited funding will be available for the Open Access Publishing Fund for 2021–22.
Open Access is a publishing model that makes scholarly information freely available online without paywalls or subscription fees. This means that researchers can access the scholarly literature without depending on their institutions to subscribe, and the public has free access to the results of research that in many cases they, as taxpayers, have funded. A recent study by Our Research found that a growing proportion of journal articles are available as Open Access, and that Open Access articles are viewed more often than those that are paywalled.
Removing barriers for readers, however, sometimes creates barriers for authors. In place of subscriptions, many Open Access journals charge publication fees to authors, making Open Access unavailable to researchers with limited funding. The library’s Open Access Publishing Fund aims to remove that barrier by providing funding for Fresno State authors to publish their work in Open Access journals.
Eligibility and Limits
All Fresno State faculty and graduate students may apply for up to $2000 to support publication of Open Access articles that have been recently accepted in peer-reviewed, Open Access journals.
Application Submission and Evaluation Process
Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until exhausted. For complete details and to apply, visit http://oafund.library.fresnostate.edu.

In 2020–21, the Madden Library’s Open Access Fund supported the publication of seven Open Access publications by Fresno State researchers.
