Financing a grassroots nonprofit effort such as MediArXiv has always been, and probably will always be, a challenge. To this end, MediArXiv has launched a new funding mechanism called the Membership Circle for libraries and institutions interested in supporting open media scholarship.
Join the Membership Circle
The MediArXiv Membership Circle is for institutions or organizations interested in supporting open dissemination of media scholarship. All that we ask is for an annual payment of $500, which helps cover the expenses of operating the server, including developer maintenance, DOI minting, hosting, overhead, domain registrations, and marketing.
What you get: Our acknowledgment of your organization as a supporter on our website and social media channels (unless you ask us not to).
Those interested in joining the Membership Circle should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
