Publication Cost Reimbursement Grant Form

Program: This program supports the cost of publishing journal articles in professional science journals. The program does not fund the cost of journal subscriptions or the costs of membership in professional organizations and societies. The grant is intended to support publications in professional print journals and is not intended to support the publication costs of textbooks or other books not intended for scholars.

Faculty seeking reimbursement for the cost of a publication must submit a request for reimbursement using the application linked above.

  • The applicant must include a copy of the acceptance letter from the journal.
  • The applicant must include a receipt for payment of the publication costs.
  • If publication of the article is contingent on membership or subscription fees to the journal, those costs must be subtracted from the reimbursement request.
  • Applicants must also complete a request for payment form to the Butler Business Office, to be included with the application. 
  • In cases of multiple authors, only one faculty author per publication will be supported.

Deadline: Reimbursement requests must be submitted by May 1 of the fiscal year in which the publication costs were paid to the journal.
