Internal Support Offered on a Rolling Basis

Departmental Support for Research Publication Costs

Applications are considered on a rolling basis - Support is limited to 1 paper per fiscal year (July 1- June 30) per faculty member who is a first or senior author.

Recognizing that the costs of publication have risen significantly, especially for open access journals whose fees are mandatory, the Department of Pediatrics is pleased to offer financial support to help offset research publication fees.

Application Instructions

The University libraries, as part of their commitment to open access publishing, support memberships with publishers and publications that provide UMN-affiliated authors with a discount on author publishing fees (APCs). You can find out more about the University Libraries' open access principles and the journals supported on the UMN Libraries website.

Pediatric Resource Grant

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

The Department of Pediatrics Research Council is pleased to announce a competitive funding mechanism to support access to resources not budgeted in existing or planned studies. Data obtained from the resource must be used to support a scholarship product that will bring recognition to the Department of Pediatrics, eg. publication, external grant proposal, patent, etc.
