Dr. Michael J. Kane (Psychology) has received a grant from the Open Access Publishing Support Fund. In early February 2012, the University Libraries and the Office of Research & Economic Development created an Open Access Publishing Support Fund in order to support faculty, EPA employees, and graduate students who are becoming increasingly involved in open access publishing. A grant of $1,000 from this fund was awarded to Kane for his article “Dispatching the wandering mind? Toward a laboratory method for cuing ‘spontaneous’ off-task thought” in Frontiers in Psychology: Perception Science.
The Open Access Publishing Support Fund primary guidelines for the fund are that the author/applicant must be a member of the full-time faculty, a full-time EPA employee, or an enrolled graduate student; the article must be published in a peer-reviewed open-access journal; reimbursement will be limited to one award per fiscal-year per author; and authors are expected to exhaust all other grant or contract funding sources available to them before applying for support from the Open Access fund.
