UC Open Access Publishing Policy – Final Expedited UC-wide

View more information about the Open Access Policy Proposal

The University Committee on Libraries and Scholarly Communication (UCOLASC) has proposed a new Open Access Publication Policy for University of California. This proposal has been reviewed in various forms over the last couple of years, most recently fall quarter 2012. The Davis Division of the Academic Senate has been asked to expedite a final review responding on behalf of the Divisional Academic Senate in July 2013. Once again, the primary policy goal is “to increase the availability and impact of research produced by the University of California, without adding new costs or undue burdens on the faculty.” We will use forum comments and standing committee responses to inform a single Davis Division of the Academic Senate response to the final review.

The Academic Federation has been asked to contribute comments via the forum, as well.

Please forward all feedback through the web forum or a standing committee of the Academic Senate by June 30, 2013.
