OSU Libraries provides support for open access journal publishing and a variety of digital publishing projects:
Visit our Digital Publishing page for examples of open book publishing and online exhibits.
In addition to providing systems and support to facilitate the deposit of faculty research articles to ScholarsArchive@OSU in support of the Oregon State University Open Access Policy, Oregon State University Libraries and Press provides financial support for authors interested in publishing their articles in open access journals:
OSU Libraries' institutional membership with MDPI automatically provides OSU authors with a 10% discount on article processing charges for MDPI journals, and discounts on book publishing charges. MDPI publishes open access journals and books in the sciences.
The MDPI Institutional Open Access Program (IOAP) provides discounts on the APCs to authors from participating institutes. During submission of an article, the author can select and confirm the affiliation directly in their online system. The corresponding or leading authors of a paper must be associated with the listed institutes to benefit of the discount.
PeerJ operates a peer-reviewed journal and a preprint server, covering the biological and health sciences, and computer sciences. All articles published in PeerJ are immediately and freely accessible on the web. OSU Libraries and Press are proud to offer OSU faculty coverage of APCs (article processing charges) for PeerJ in support of their open access publishing activities. The charge will be paid when OSU faculty have an article accepted for publication in PeerJ.
Internationally and here in the US, a growing number of institutions are signing on to the concept of Open Access through OA Policies or Mandates which state that their researchers will make use of a local institutional repository to preserve their scholarly writings.
In June 2013, the OSU faculty passed an open access policy that requires the deposit of articles to the ScholarsArchive@OSU open access institutional repository. For help with faculty deposits, consult the ScholarsArchive User guide
