First Wish Second Wish Third Wish Library Comments Tags

I wish the library would take the lead to establish a fund of money (e.g. provided by the Dean, or raised through donations) to defray the costs of making publications open access. The benefits of open access publishing are numerous; a list of benefits to the University and author are here: http://library.duke.edu/openaccess/benefits.html Several Universities (including UT and KS locally; if KS can do it, why can't we?) already provide such a fund. http://www.lib.utah.edu/services/open-access-publishing-fund.php http://library.kumc.edu/authors-fund.xml http://oad.simmons.edu/oadwiki/OA_journal_funds
