RE:     UFOAP Funds Still Available For This Year, But Future of Funding Uncertain


The University of Florida Open Access Publishing Fund (UFOAP) was launched on July 1, 2010 as a two year pilot project to support UF faculty, post-doctoral researchers, staff and students in their open access (OA) publishing endeavors by paying reasonable article-processing fees charged by open access journals when funds were not available from other sources. The UFOAP was initially funded by the Provost with $120,000. The Fund was continued in 2012 with the generous commitment of funding by the Provost in the amount of $75,000.

Since July 2010, the UFOAP has funded publication of 172 unique articles, benefitting 407 UF-affiliated authors from 58 academic departments in 12 colleges and the Florida Museum of Natural History. As of November 1, 2012, $28,800 of this year's allocation remains. We will continue to accept and process applications until this amount has been expended. Continuation of the UFOAP beyond this year's funding, however, depends upon the verbal support and financial commitment of all UF academic units. We urge our UFOAP recipients and open access supporters across campus to contact their department chairs and college deans and share your thoughts about the importance of the UFOAP and open access at UF.  

The Libraries continue to encourage faculty to consider OA when publishing their scholarly works. Recent studies show that OA benefits the author because articles published online are made available much faster than those in traditional proprietary journals, thereby giving their research timely visibility, higher citation rates, and greater overall impact.  

For more information on Open Access or the UFOAP, please feel free to contact Christine Fruin, Scholarly Communications Librarian, at [log in to unmask] or at (352) 273-2710. You may also visit the Open Access LibGuide for more information.
