Step 6. Share Your Research

The University adheres to principles of openness in research. This section provides information and resources for researchers to explore the steps to publicizing, publishing and archiving research.

Many sponsors, including the NIH and NSF, allow publication costs as part of the grant budget. To determine how much you should budget, consult the information for authors for the journal of your choice. The University supports publication in high quality journals and conferences in your field. To determine the relative rankings of various journals, see Citation & Metrics.

Some journals provide open access options. This means that the author pays the publication cost rather than the reader. If funding is not available, the J.Willard Marriott Library offers the Open Access Publishing Fund to offset open access article processing fees. The purpose of the Open Access Publishing Fund is to foster seamless access to U of U authored journal articles and to help re-envision traditional scholarly journal publishing.
