(4 November 2013) The Academic Senate of the University of California adopted an Open Access Policy on 24 July 2013, ensuring that future scholarly articles authored by faculty at all 10 UC campuses will be made available to the public at no charge.
The Open Access Policy Implementation team at the California Digital Library is pleased to announce the November 1st launch of a set of tools and resources designed to support the UC OA Policy and help campuses spread the word to faculty who are ready to deposit their scholarly articles in eScholarship (UC’s open access repository), looking for more information about the policy, or seeking a waiver or embargo confirmation.
The tools and resources include a New eScholarship Deposit Workflow, a new Office of Scholarly Communication Site, a 90-second video introducing UC faculty to the policy and motivating them to deposit their work in eScholarship, and more.
