OSI grants program for OA journals

The Open Society Institute Information Program has announced a new grants program for open access journals. OSI is providing $50,000 "to support the publication in open access journals of articles by authors residing and working in countries where the Soros foundations network is active." The funding covers article processing fees charged by OA journals for accepted articles and will be paid directly to the journals. The program covers all open-access journals and all disciplines. Journal publishers may apply online.
