Through the Open Access Publishing Fund, Emory joins other universities in the United States and Europe in offering its authors funding to assist with publication charges for OA journals and books. Any open access article or book published with support from this fund is also required to be submitted to OpenEmory, an open access repository of scholarly work by Emory faculty.

In 2021 the fund supported the work of more than 50 Emory faculty members, post-docs, researchers, and graduate and undergraduate students from more than 20 departments across the university. Learn more about the articles supported in 2020.
