The Graduate Student Society Open Access Award acknowledges graduate students who have published work in gold open access journals. Our aim is to increase the visibility and prestige of such publications and support the open access movement’s ability to effectively disseminate research findings. The GSS OA Award is jointly administered by the GSS and the SFU Library and will consist of up to 50 monetary awards of $50.00 each.
Applications will be accepted until October 13th, 2017, and the award winners will be announced in conjunction with Open Access Week 2017.
For more information about open access publishing, assistance in finding suitable open access publishing venues for your work, and accessing the SFU Library Open Access Fund, please contact your departmental librarian or visit the Scholarly Publishing and Open Access Guide.
