The UCT Open Access Journal Publication Fund (OAJPF) has been established to support UCT researchers with the publication of their research output in open access journals. The Fund is intended to contribute to Article Processing Charges (APCs) for submissions accepted for publication in open access journals or in hybrid journals that have an open access option.

Open access scholarly publishing will enhance the strength, visibility, accessibility and discoverability of UCT's scholarly output. UCT supports o
pen access scholarly publishing as it offers the potential for democratic access to research knowledge, opening up scholarly content to a much wider range of readers and stakeholders in both the public and private sectors.
