The K-State Open Access Publishing Fund (KOAPF) supports the goal of making K-State research and scholarship immediately, freely and globally available. When support is not available from other sources, the KOAPF will assist K-State authors by paying reasonable article processing fees for publishing in open access journals.  

This initiative is jointly funded through the Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President and the K-State Libraries.

Applications that comply with the eligibility criteria will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis. 

No endorsement of any journal or of the research merit of any article is implied by this funding.
