Note about providing funding. The IR coordinator administers the voucher program for the Royal Society of Chemistry
Gold for Gold OA publishing voucher program. We do not have an OA publishing fund, but a proposal for one was
submitted to the Dean’s group by the Scholarly Communications librarian and the IR coordinator.
The Director of Graduate and Research Services who also is a liaison librarian provides support for copyright related
issues and questions. A Data Management Librarian has occasionally assisted faculty/researchers in identifying and
evaluating open-access journals and has helped faculty with an addendum to their author copyright.
