An exciting new fund has arrived just in time for the kick-off of the 2019 fall semester at the University of British Columbia – it’s called the “UBC Scholarly Publication Fund”.
This new fund, provided by the University’s Office of the Vice-President, Research and Innovation (VPRI) and administered by the UBC Library, will soon “assist UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan faculty members [alike] with the costs of scholarly publication”.
It will help offset some scholarly publishing costs imposed by publishers and academic presses nowadays. While most researchers, especially early career faculty in the humanities and social sciences, aim to make their scholarly works as openly accessible and/or with as little publishing cost(s) as possible, they face added fees for enhanced images, tables, figures, copyrighted materials, or special production elements.
