Proposed New UC Policy on Open Access

Comment Period: 10/15/14 - 01/15/15

The proposed new policy extends open access rights and responsibilities to all non-Senate members of the UC community who are authors of scholarly articles, including faculty, other academic personnel, students, administrators, and staff.  The policy allows non-Senate authors of scholarly articles to maintain legal control over their research articles while making their work freely available to the public.
