Introducing The Dr. Junda Lin Memorial Fund for Publishing Open Access Marine Aquarium Research.
The goal of the fund is to off-set the cost to students of publishing research as open access articles in order to promote the spread of scientific ideas to not only scientists, but to anyone who is interested in the research, by making it freely available.
Rather than in the traditional scientific publishing scheme, where the reader of the scientific article incurs a cost to access the article, with open access articles, the article is available to the world, and the author is charged a fee when the article is accepted by the publisher.
Therefore, the Dr. Junda Lin Memorial Fund for Publishing Open Access Marine Aquarium Research is a fund sponsored by individuals, aquarium clubs, businesses, and universities that provides students with a financial offset to the costs of publishing a scientific article as an open access article.
This is where you come in. Without the support of sponsors, the Dr. Junda Lin Memorial Fund for Publishing Open Access Marine Aquarium Research will not be possible!
