The University of Florida Open-Access Publishing (UFOAP)
Fund supports the goal of making UF research findings
immediately, freely and globally available. When funds are
not available from other sources, the UFOAP will assist UF
authors by paying reasonable article processing fees for
publishing in open access journals and for a portion of paid
access fees charged by other publishers. Articles that
comply with the eligibility criteria will be funded on a first-
come, first-served basis.
This pilot was developed as a collaborative project by the
Dean of Libraries and the Provost of UF and is scheduled to
begin July 1, 2010 and to continue for 18 months.

Any UF faculty, post-doctoral researcher, staff member, or
student author may request up to $3,000 per year to pay for
article-processing fees.

Open Access Journals
Up to $3,000 per article will be provided to pay publication
fees in open-access journals which provide free,
immediate, online access to the full text of research articles
without restrictions. Eligible journals include those listed in
the Directory of Open Access Journals
(, or publishers that hold membership in
the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association
(, and/or are compliant with the
Association's Code of Conduct.
Paid Access (Hybrid) Journals
Up to $1,500 per article will be provided to pay for selecting
a paid OA option from a hybrid publisher. Eligible journals
are listed in The Directory of Open Access & Hybrid

1. Submit article to the journal publisher
2. Upon acceptance for publication, receive an invoice for publication charges
from the publisher
3. Submit the publication charge invoice along with a UFOAP request form to
the Dean of Libraries
4. The Dean of Libraries will review requests.
5. If the request is accepted, the applicant and their department chair will
receive notification. The library will send payment directly to the publisher.
6. Successful applicants must acknowledge the UFOAP Funding in two ways:
1. They are encouraged and reminded to submit a copy of the final
article to the UF Institutional Repository
2. In the final article they must credit the funding source by including the
statement: "Publication of this article was funded in part by the
University of Florida Open-Access Publishing Fund."

The UFOAP will be reviewed at the end of the 18-month
pilot study. Program continuation will be based on the
following 3 evaluative measures:

1. Use of the UFOAP funds
The measures of fund use will include those suggested
in the SPARC Open-Access Publishing Fund document:
*Number of Open Access Articles Reimbursed,
Including Those in Hybrid Journals
*Number of Unique Submitting Authors Participating
*Number of Unique Departments Participating
*Number of Unique Open Access and Hybrid
Journals Utilized
*Amount of Money Disbursed
These measures will be compared with OA
publication data from 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 to
determine the increase in participation.

2. Qualitative comments from the
The second measure will be evaluative comments
solicited from each of the participants who
requested funding.

3. Citation counts of the articles.
Additional measures will be citation counts done on
each of the articles through Harzing's Publish or
Perish program [],
which draws counts from the Google Scholar
database and from the ISI Web of Knowledge
(WoS) citations database. Indexing of online
publications has a recognized time-lag so each
database will be searched at quarterly intervals
during the pilot program. The uptake of articles into
the citation pathways may extend beyond the
timeframe for the pilot project.
