Financial support for PsyArXiv

Center for Open Science have secured a major funding commitment, until the end of 2025, which will support your favourite OSF preprint servers – including PsyArXiv. It’s a big win for keeping the lights on at PsyArXiv, and continuing the mission to bring about a new age for the dissemination and discovery of scholarship in psychological science.

The funding comes from the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation (IPLC), and since here at PsyArXiv we believe in full and proper credit, let’s list of the “13 sovereign academic libraries” which make up the IPLC partners: Brown University, the University of Chicago, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Duke University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Stanford University, and Yale University.

Heroes!

Here’s a quote from the IPLC Directors which we fully endorse:

“As representatives of some of the most well-resourced libraries in the country, we are committed to using our resources to promote public access to all research, not just the research our scholars produce….Investing in infrastructure and services that are directly aligned with the research mission are critical to laying the foundation for a more open and equitable system of research that will result in better, faster answers to the problems of our time.”
