The Provost and Dartmouth College Library have agreed to underwrite reasonable article processing fees for open access scholarly journals for which funds are not otherwise available. These funds are available to faculty, postdoctoral fellows and research associates, graduate students, undergraduate students, and staff while they are affiliated with Dartmouth College.

I therefore request support from the Provost/Library Fund to Support Open Access Publication for the following:
This funding will support the following work.
I attest to the following:
  1. The article will appear in a peer-reviewed journal.
  2. The journal named above is an established “pure” open access journal. The journal does not charge readers or their institutions for access to any of the peer-reviewed articles that it publishes.
  3. The journal is listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals and the publisher is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association or adheres to its Code of Conduct.
  4. The funds I am requesting will be used for publication fees (including page charges) and submission fees.
  5. In my estimation, the fees charged by the journal are reasonable. They are based on a standard fee schedule.
  6. Alternative funding to support these fees is not currently available. If research for the article was supported by gifts or grants, the granting agency, foundation, or other institution supporting the research (including Dartmouth College itself) does not allow granted funds to be used for article processing fees, or does not provide funds for article processing fees. (Please note that NIH, NSF, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, among other large granting agencies, will fund open access publications through their research grants.) The journal named above has a policy to substantially waive fees in case of economic hardship.
  7. I understand that the source of funding for publication fees will be made public.
