2. For payments made from a personal credit card, your application must include:

  • Concordia Open Access Author Fund Request Form
  • Concordia Expense Report Reimbursement Form (Fill in everything except the Fund/Org and Account Code, which will be filled in by the fund manager.)
  • a copy of the publisher's invoice
  • a copy of a credit card statement, bank document, or other proof of payment showing the amount paid in Canadian dollars

For payments made from a grant, your application must include:

  • Concordia Open Access Author Fund Request Form
  • a copy of the publisher’s invoice
  • a copy of a credit card statement, bank document, or other proof of payment showing the amount paid in Canadian dollars
