My publisher charges $____ for open access. Do I have to pay that to comply with the policy?

No. The publisher charges those fees to fund open access publication of your article at the journal’s website. The purpose of the SIU Open Access Policy is to include a free open access option by archiving the author’s version of the article in the university's own repository. There is no fee associated with this archiving function.
