As journal publishing moves from a subscription-based model to an author-pays model, many universities and libraries are establishing funds to pay authors' article publishing charges. This session will provide examples of open access funds at three different kinds of institutions-a major research university, a health science university, and a comprehensive university. Attendees will gain an understanding of why these funds were established and how they are supported, promoted, and managed. Each panelist will present a case study describing the structure, performance, reception, and long-term sustainability of his or her institution's open access fund.
