Q. Will the Open Access Authors Fund do reimbursements for already-paid article processing charges?

The preferred method is invoice payment by LCR on behalf of authors. Reimbursements bring more paperwork for all involved and can take up to two months to occur, during which time authors have to cover potentially large APC charges themselves. On occasion, however, reimbursements are allowed. Reimbursements need to be approved by the library and must meet the critera for the Open Access Authors Fund.
