Article Processing Charges (APC) for Yale Library staff

Yale University Library is committed to the professional development of its staff. Authorship of articles is recognized as one component of professional development. The introduction of Open Access (OA) publishing models, in which the costs of publication fall on authors rather than through institutional or personal subscriptions, increases the likelihood that library staff may need to pay article processing charges (APC) when they seek to publish. Therefore, the Library Executive Committee (LEC) has approved a pilot program to cover APCs for library staff.
