Benefits of open access publishing – Worms in the New York Times

Figure 2 from the article

The FET open access fund is now open, and authors from the Faculty of Environment and Technology can apply for funds to pay an article processing charge and publish their article open access (regardless of whether they are funded or not, as is the case with the RCUK fund that the library holds.)

So this seems like a great opportunity to showcase an example of an article that was published open access by the fund: Sendova-Franks, A.Franks, N. and Worley, A. (2018) Plant–animal worms round themselves up in circular mills on the beach. Royal Society Open Science, 5 (180665). ISSN 2054-5703 Available from: http://eprints.uwe.ac.uk/37211

An article in the New York Times has been written about the research, That’s Not Algae Swirling on the Beach. Those Are Green Worms. The article has also been tweeted about hundreds of times – you can find out more details on Altmetric.

FET authors who would like to apply for the fund can do so by following the instructions on the library webpages and can ask for more information by contacting the team.
