Open Access LogoAlthough costs for digital publishing can be lower than for print publishing, open access publishing is not free? Authors or universities may be required to pay Article Page Charges (APCs) prior to publication. [adapted from ACRL Scholarly Communication Toolkit].

Faculty, if you elect to publish your work with Open Access and your publisher charges APCs, modest funding may be available at Georgia Southern to offset some of this cost.
