What are open access publishing agreements?

Resources for Open Access Publishing

It is assumed that Article Processing Charges (APCs) for open access publication in a journal will be paid by a funding agency or by the author’s institution. Be sure to include this discussion in grant proposals. Alternatively you may be able to publish a green open access copy in our own institutional repository (WSU Research Exchange), or in a disciplinary repository. Here are a few resources for discovering OA publications and OA funding.
