During Open Access Week, held October 22-28, the library sponsored a drawing for students to receive funds toward the article processing charge (APC) for one article published in an open access or hybrid journal. Hang Su, a graduate student in Pharmacology and Experimental Neurosciences is the winner of the random drawing. His paper, which explores the early events during HIV-1 infection using humanized mouse models, is currently in the peer review process for consideration in an open access journal. If accepted, the library will cover the cost of the APC.
In his submission application, Hang stated: “Science is about inventing, discovering, and sharing adventures with others. It is only worth by working with each other, helping each other, and celebrating with each other. Publishing an article with open access is all about this.”
Hang’s article will also appear in the library’s institutional repository, DigitalCommons.
Open Access Week is promoted each year around the world in order to raise awareness of access to resources and possibilities of using “open” publishing models to disseminate research. If you have questions about open access, please contact the library.
The Writing Center @ UNMC (and all UNO locations) will be on break until January 7, 2019.
The library and its services will be closed on Wednesday, December 5 in observation of the national day of mourning for former President George H.W. Bush. For more information regarding this day, please see the UNMC Today article.
