Virginia Tech began subsidizing article processing fees for authors publishing scholarly peer reviewed articles in open access and hybrid OA journals in August 2012, following the approval of "The Proposal for a Virginia Tech Open Access Publishing Fund." During the pilot, 67 requests for funds were made, totaling $100,564 in publisher fees. In response to these requests the VT OASF awarded $58,700 to 117 VT authors, 26 of whom were funded more than once. The OASF supported the publication of 55 open access articles in 38 journals by 22 publishers.
