Article Processing Charge (APC) Fund


The Libraries offer a number of ways to help you fund open access publishing, from providing funding to maintaining memberships that will help you pay less to publish your research. The Libraries maintains an Article Processing Charge (APC) fund to support our CMU authors who wish to publish open access. Eligibility criteria apply. Learn more in the APC Fund Research Guide.

  • Please complete and submit this form to request APC funding for your article.
  • When requesting APC funding from the Libraries, you will need to provide a copy of the publisher's invoice (in USD, preferably) and a departmental Oracle account string to cover the APC balance not covered by the fund.
  • The requesting author's name and email address on the form must match the name and email on the publisher's invoice.
  • The Libraries pays the publisher directly on receipt of an approved request for funding with the publisher's invoice. We cannot retroactively reimburse authors or departments for an APC fund request made after an invoice is paid.
