A variety of models and options now exist for sharing, accessing and archiving scientific research results. We provide education and support for publishing and managing author rights.
The University of Kansas will underwrite article processing charges for open access journal articles when funds are otherwise not available. The fund is made possible with contributions from The University of Kansas Provost, The University of Kansas Medical Center Executive Vice Chancellor, and the Offices of Research at The University of Kansas and University of Kansas Medical Center.
KU Scholarworks is the institutional repository of KU, managed by KU Libraries in Lawrence.
