How does the University support publication in BioMedCentral (BMC) journals? I would like to submit a manuscript and need to pay the fee.

We are submitting a manuscript for publication in a BioMedCentral journal. My co-author is a UofT professor. How does the university support publishing in BMC journals? Can I get some financial help for this from the university?
