The Tri Agency Open Access policy mandates that peer reviewed journal publications are freely accessible within 12 months of publication. This usually involves considerable expense on the part of the authors. In recognition of the importance of access to journal publications from its members, WCMR invites applications from WCMR UWaterloo faculty members on a rolling basis for fee assistance in the amount of CA$500 to partially defray the costs of Open Access publishing.
WCMR faculty members can fill out our form to apply for the grant. The submitted material will be quickly reviewed to ensure that the subject matter of the paper falls within the broad discipline of “Microbiology”. The WCMR requests that they are acknowledged for financial support for open access publishing costs in the published article.
Upon acceptance of the manuscript authors shall forward copies of the manuscript acceptance letter, and the invoice for the article processing charges to email@example.com.
There is a limit of $5000 available per fiscal year (Apr - Mar) on a first come first serve basis and a limit of one successful request per professor.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
