Starting in 2018, the UNLV University Libraries began to provide funding to support UNLV researchers seeking to publish in fully open access journals that required payment of article processing charges (APCs). With initial support from the Library Advisory Board, the Collections, Interlibrary Loan, and Acquisitions (CIA) and Scholarly Communication & Data Services (SCADS) departments partnered to fund and manage the awards.

In 2020, the Minority-Serving Institution (MSI) Student Council, created a similar fund for graduate students in collaboration with the University Libraries.

In 2022 the School of Medicine Library (SOML) began a pilot fund to support UNLV Faculty, Residents, and Fellows located at the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine.

This collection showcases the articles supported by both the UNLV Open Article Fund for faculty and the MSI Open Article Fund for graduate students. For fund status, application criteria, and application instructions visit:
