Welcome to Spring 2011! Some cool stuff for you (Part 2 of 2)

Here’s some more cool library stuff for you

Publish in an Open Access Journal; We Will Help Pay Author Fees

The University strives both to maximize the benefits of Berkeley’s research for the scholarly community and to advance knowledge in ways that improve the quality of life in local and global communities. The Berkeley Research Impact Initiative (BRII) supports faculty members, post-docs, and graduate students who want to make their journal articles free to all readers immediately upon publication.

Details available at the BRII web site.
