OAK Fund Annual Report: 2016-2017
MetadataShow full item record
The Open Access to Knowledge (OAK) Fund at Texas A&M underwrites publication charges for scholarly journal articles, book chapters, and monographs published in open access publications in order to support and encourage the shift to publishing Texas A&M’s research that is free of subscription barriers. The OAK Fund distributed funds to 194 faculty in support of publication fees for 76 articles for a total amount of funding distributed of $75,448 in the 2016-2017 academic year. We received a number of communications from TAMU faculty concerning ineligible coauthors. We have two recommendations to address these concerns: (1) amend the OAK Fund eligibility rules to allow for support of graduate student authors, and (2) amend the OAK Fund eligibility rules to allow for support of non-TAMU coauthors when a TAMU author is the lead author on the paper as evidence by authorship sequence or corresponding author.
