As you complete the application form, you'll be asked to upload these additional items:
Invoices with the author/applicant and their GMU affiliation as the Bill To entity will not be accepted.
The dollar amount must also be accurate, and this will differ on a case-by-case basis.
The invoice date must be within an acceptable timeframe: this will also differ on a case-by-case basis.
Applicants need to ask the publisher for a link/URL for credit card payments, and then forward it to OAPF staff. URLs:
should not require the user to create a username and password,
should not be time-sensitive (expiring after a certain time limit),
should be enduring and persistent: OAPF staff first need to click on it, to verify it works, and then the Libraries' Accounting staff need to click on it, and it should still work.
An appropriate invoice (see above) is the only acceptable document. What cannot be accepted:
IMPORTANT: Applications must be complete, including all of the documents and details noted above, to be considered.
Applicants will be notified of funding approval. Payment will be made either (a) directly to your publisher, or (b) to your department. The University Libraries cannot reimburse an individual author. For more information, see "Requirements > Reimbursement Requirements" from the left-side menu.
Once an application is complete (qualifying journal and conforming invoice) processing should be complete within 10-14 days. International payments may take longer if publisher does not accept a credit card.
