The UC Open Access Policy (http://osc.universityofcalifornia.edu/open-access-policy/ or http://uc-oa.info) was passed by the UC Academic Senate on July 24, 2013, and is going into effect for all UC campuses, including UC Davis, on November 1, 2014. The policy grants UC faculty the right to make their articles freely available to the public by depositing a pre-publication copy in an open access repository. What does this policy mean for faculty at UC Davis?
Come to this talk by Catherine Mitchell of the California Digital Library (CDL), who will describe the tools and services that CDL is developing to support the policy, and Dr. Robert Powell of Chemical Engineering, who will give background on the policy and its passage through the UC Senate. Afterwards a Q&A panel will be held with the speakers, UC Davis librarians and open access researchers to answer questions and discuss the implications of the policy and open access.
This talk is being held during Open Access Week 2014, an annual international event to raise awareness about open access issues.
