Dear Colleagues and Students,

Re: HKU Libraries Open Access Author Fund – Invitation for Applications

We are pleased to announce that a new "HKU Libraries Open Access Author Fund" will be established on 1 November 2022. The initiative aims to encourage HKU authors to publish journal articles in open access, and enjoy the potential benefits, such as more readers, more potential collaborators, and more citations for their works.


Here are some key features of the Fund:


  • Current HKU academic/research staff and postgraduate students who are the corresponding authors of the articles, and without sufficient fundings to support open access charges

Article requirement

  • Immediate open access peer-reviewed articles

Amount covered

  • Actual expenses for open access article processing charges (APCs), up to US$2,000


  • Only applications prior to the date of publication are accepted
  • First-come-first-served


Watch the video to get a quick glance.

For the full version of terms and conditions and application procedure, please refer to the webpage:


Don't miss the opportunity! Publish in open access and apply now.

If you have any questions, please contact us at


Best regards,
Learning and Research Services
The University of Hong Kong Libraries
