The Dr. Junda Lin Memorial Fund for Publishing Open Access Marine Aquarium
In an effort to assist in making marine aquarium research freely available
to all, MASNA has created The Dr. Junda Lin Memorial Fund for Publishing
Open Access Marine Aquarium Research.
The goal of the fund is to offset the cost to students of publishing
research as open access articles in order to promote the spread of
scientific ideas to not only scientists, but to anyone who is interested in
the research, by making it freely available.
Dr. Junda Lin was a Professor of Biological Sciences at the Florida
Institute of Technology and the Director of the Institute for Marine
Research (IMR). Dr. Lin’s Lab focused on the development of aquaculture
technology for marine ornamental species to offset and replace wild
collection. Dr. Lin’s lab studied the basic biological processes of several
shellfish and fish species, evaluated their aquaculture potential, and
developed cultivation technology.
North American students, no matter where they are studying in the world, as
well as students from abroad, who are studying in North America, are
eligible, as long as they are attending an accredited college or university..
The fund has supported the open access publishing of two scientific
articles at the $1,500 level and are currently in review. These articles
will be linked to on the fund web page once they are publicly available.
The Quarter 3 deadline for submission is September 30, 2017.
