Expanding the open access policy beyond the faculty: UC Presidential Open Access Policy
An institutional open access policy usually covers a certain group of authors, such as faculty members, or members of a certain department or school. The University of California’s Academic Senate policy, adopted in 2013, ensured that scholarly articles authored by senate faculty at all ten UC campuses would be made available to the public at no charge. A precursor to this policy was adopted by the UCSF Academic Senate in 2012.
Senate faculty are, however, only a portion of UC researchers who publish scholarly articles; around 22,000 of the approximately 63,000 total authors within the UC System. In 2015, the UC adopted a Presidential Open Access Policy which expanded open access rights and responsibilities to all other UC staff who write scholarly articles while employed at UC, including non-senate researchers, lecturers, post-doctoral scholars, administrative staff, librarians, and graduate students.
During this call, members of the California Digital Library, who work with campuses to implement UC's open access policies and manage the UC-wide institutional repository, will discuss the impetus for the expanded open access policy and where it is similar to and different from the Academic Senate open access policy. They will also share how UC's open access policies are being implemented across the UC campuses and challenges to implementation.
