Open access publishing support for researchers at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas

If you’re a researcher based at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, the University Libraries have made funds available to help you take advantage of the benefits of publishing in Taylor & Francis Open journals:

“Sharing research through open access provides benefits for authors (greater reach and use of their works), for UNLV (showcasing the research scholarship to potential students and faculty), and to the public, lawmakers, non-profit organizations, and small businesses by ensuring that research that could impact their decisions is available to them.”
