The UCSF Open Access Publishing Fund helped cover open access (OA) publication fees between 2015-2022 for UCSF authors without grant or other funds available to cover them.
The UCSF Academic Senate provided funding from 2015-2019, supplemented by the Library since 2017. From 2020-22, the Library was the sole source of funding. See the 2017 announcement for the Fund's background with Academic Senate funding, and an overview of the fund from 2015 until its closure in 2022.
