Four Fresno State researchers awarded Open Access mini-grants
The Henry Madden Library hosted the symposium Why Open Access Matters in September, and four attendees have been awarded mini-grants to support Open Access publication of their research. The awardees and their departments are:
- Qiao-Hong Chen, Chemistry
- Joshua Reece, Biology
- David Lent, Biology
- Susmita Talukdar, Fulbright Visiting Scholar in English
The Reece and Lent papers are co-authored with Fresno State graduate and undergraduate students.
Funding for the mini-grants was provided by the Henry Madden Library, the Center for Faculty Excellence, The Division of Graduate and Research Studies, and the Office of the Provost.
“We are excited to collaborate with our campus partners to award these four mini-grants,” said Britt Foster, Fresno State librarian and chair of the symposium steering committee. “There is excellent work being done here at Fresno State, and these mini-grants will allow for open and increased access to these important findings from our faculty and students.”
Open Access is the free, online publishing of scholarly research in order to encourage more efficient production of knowledge and equitable access to that knowledge. Open Access Week is being celebrated internationally from October 22-28, 2018. For more on Open Access, see https://opensource.com/resources/what-open-access
