Many journal publishers will charge an article processing charge (APC) or publication fee in order for the author to publish their work in as Open Access. These fees are usually a couple hundred to several thousand dollars an article.
The Library has agreements with some publishers so that UNBC authors can either get a discount on the APC or have it waived altogether. An up-to-date list of publisher agreements is available at https://libguides.unbc.ca/scholarly-communication/author-resources.
UNBC also offers a Research Strategic Initiatives Grant (RSIG) which can be used to cover APCs. Apply for the RSIG through Romeo.
