Villanova's Falvey University Library is dedicated to supporting its faculty and the pursuit of Open Access publishing. Here is a list of University sponsored Open Access support inititiatives:

  • Funding for OA publication: Funding for your Open Access work is available through the Scholarship Open Access Reserve (SOAR) fund. Every year faculty, students, and staff affiliated with Villanova can apply for funding. 

  • The Subvention of Publication Program supports scholarly material such as books or monographs of the highest quality that have been accepted at competitive university presses or other comparable publishing houses. ​​​​​Cases where there are high publishing costs due to art, illustrations, photo inserts, and other expensive production elements are considered good candidates. ​​

In addition, Villanova supports Open Access to educational resources (OER). Students and faculty can learn more here:
