New SPARC release: Guide to exloring campus-based OA funds

SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) has released a website that is designed to act as a guide for those institutions who wish to explore campus-based OA funds. The site can be found at and includes a guide to design and implementation of OA funds, a FAQ, implementation tools, case studies, and a "living" document that describes OA funds in action.

Disclosure: I manage one of the funds that is discussed in the guide (the Open Access Authors Fund at the Univeristy of Calgary) and my input was solicited for this project.
