In November 2020, the Library and the Office of Research held consultation sessions regarding recent changes to the Open Access Author Fund’s eligibility requirements. Feedback and comments have been shared with the Open Access Working Group, which is now considering the best ways to support open access publishing by Concordia researchers. Specific details should be available by the end of the 2020-21 academic year. Accordingly, the Fund is on pause and requests for reimbursement cannot be processed.
If you have comments or concerns you wish to share with the Open Access Working Group, you are welcome to write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The annual report for the Open Access Author Fund is produced at the end of each fiscal year:
The Open Access Fund tracking spreadsheet contains three tabs: (1) an introduction, (2) a list with the reimbursement requests per fiscal year, (3) the amount of money in the fund per fiscal year. It will be updated once a year, at the same time as the annual report.
