Who We Are

Know the Libraries
As part of Purdue University Libraries scholarly communication strategic goal, we “advocate the change in scholarly communication to promote economic sustainability, effective use of copyright, and open access to knowledge for all.” To this end, Purdue University Libraries has established the Purdue University Libraries Open Access Publishing Fund. This project seeks to support Purdue University research and engagement by directly supporting open access publishing, much of which is already happening at Purdue. By supporting Open Access scholarly outputs, this fund functions to both support research activities at Purdue University, as well as to increase discovery and visibility of Purdue University research outputs.
Any current Purdue University faculty member, researcher, post-doc, staff, or graduate student who do not have available funds that can be used for open access charges may apply for funding of up to $3,000 per article to pay for article processing fees.
Further details are available in the FAQs. Questions about The Fund or Open Access should be directed to Nina Collins, Scholarly Publishing Specialist.
To apply for funding complete the funding application at Oable.org. Oable is an open access publishing management platform from Knowledge Unlatched. Select Purdue University Researchers Login and use your Boiler Key credentials.
