their article processing charges with personal funds may be eligible for reimbursement. Researchers
who paid with a departmental card will be rejected.
Article Reimbursement Cap
The maximum dollar amount that the COAP Fund will reimburse for a single article is $3,000.
Author Reimbursement Cap
Authors may receive funding for up to $3,000 per year for all article-processing charges. Unused amounts
do not roll over to future years.
In the case of an article with multiple authors, each eligible author can apply for reimbursement for a
prorated portion of the publication fee. An example: An article with three authors, two of whom are from
Columbia, is to appear in a journal with a $3,000 publication fee. Each Columbia author may apply for
reimbursement for $1,000. In the hypothetical case of an eligible journal with a $6,000 publication fee, each
Columbia author could apply for reimbursement for a prorated portion of the $3,000 funding cap per article,
Application and Reimbursement Process
Please submit your request for funds immediately upon your article’s acceptance for publication by following
the instructions for application and reimbursement.
Funded Articles to Academic Commons
We deposit copies of the final published version of articles supported by the COAP Fund in Academic
Commons, Columbia’s online research repository. Academic Commons staff will also contact funded
authors and encourage them to deposit all their eligible research outputs into the repository.
CUL/IS has committed $25,000 for the program for the 2015-16 academic year. Funding for articles that
comply with the eligibility criteria will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
All aspects of this program, including the amount of funding committed to the program, will be analyzed and
reviewed on a regular basis.
