Funds available for faculty to publish in Open Access journals

The Offices of the Provost and the Vice President for Research and Economic Development have established a new fund to support faculty who want to publish in Open Access journals and who do not have other sources of funding available to cover publication fees.

This year $15,000 has been made available. Funding for articles that comply with eligibility criteria will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Details on eligible journals, fund rules, and information on how to apply are available at

The URI Open Access Fund is available to full-time faculty of the University of Rhode Island and is managed by the University Libraries.
