To mark Open Access Week the Tufts University Libraries' Scholarly Communication Team has launched a website celebrating the recipients of our Provost's Open Access Fund. The fund has two components: the first, for publishing, funds scholars who choose to publish with author-pays open access; the second, for digitization, supports the creation of sustainable open access digital collections of unique research materials created by Tufts faculty.
All of the publications which have been funded for open access publication have also been made available in the Tufts Digital Library. The digitized research materials will also be made available in the TDL once they are created, digitized, and described.
So congratulations to the recipients of the fund!
