Withdrawn in August 2016
In 2015 the Library was exploring the idea of establishing an Open Access Author Fund to support University of Guelph researchers who wished to publish in Open Access (OA) journals with article processing charges (APCs).
Scholarly publishing continues to be in flux. Given the current environment (Tri-Agency OA Policy in place, the decline in the Canadian dollar affecting the Library's purchasing power), we decided to refocus and renew our commitment to OA by prioritising more sustainable strategies. The Library continues to support OA publishing in a number of ways.
Thanks to many in the Guelph community who continue to share their perspectives and interest in OA.
Contact us if you would like to discuss and review your OA publishing options.
