Office of Research new faculty start-up funding may be reallocated to provide funds for open access publishing. If you would like to reallocate some of your budget, please submit a request to Branden Blanchard at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Office of Research strongly suggests that all faculty work through the USU Libraries to ensure that funds are used in the most efficient way possible when publishing open access.
You may write publication costs into a proposal budget when applying for grants. If publication costs were included in the proposal budget and detailed in the proposal budget justification, you may request from the sponsor a no-cost extension so that grant funds will cover publication fees after the main grant period—but a no-cost extension is not guaranteed.
