Open Access Publishing Discounts
Internal Funding for Authors
Authors are sometimes asked to pay article processing charges (APCs) to publish books or articles on an open access basis. To cover these fees, UConn-affiliated researchers based at the Storrs and Regional campuses are encouraged to apply for Scholarship Facilitation Fund awards from the University’s Office of the Vice President for Research.
The UConn Library does not provide direct funding to cover these fees.
Discounts for Authors
Thanks to agreements with these publishers, UConn-affiliated corresponding authors are entitled to receive automatic discounts on article processing charges (APCs). Books and articles are both covered. To take advantage of these discounts, please use your @uconn.edu email address when submitting your work to the publishers.
