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 PresidentOffice of Research and Sponsored Programs and the K-State Libraries.

Application for the publishing fund is temporarily unavailable. Please contact the Center for the Advancement of Digital Scholarship at or (785) 532-7444 for more information.
