This presentation will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the University of Nebraska at Omaha Open Access Fund through analysis of the disciplinary diversity of applicants, eligibility guidelines, funding limit and the benefits of publishing Open Access. Furthermore, it will seek to discover ways to increase participation in the Open Access Fund and by extension, the institutional repository, through comparison with other universities’ OA funds.
