OSU Open Access Policy unanimously approved

Oregon State University Faculty Senate unanimously approved an Open Access Policy at the June 13, 2013 Faculty Senate meeting. The policy directs faculty to submit an electronic copy of the accepted (post-peer review, pre-typeset) manuscript of their articles to OSU Libraries for dissemination via the ScholarsArchive@OSU institutional repository.The policy grants Oregon State University a non-exclusive license to exercise any and all rights under copyright relating to its faculty's scholarly articles, in any medium, and to authorize others to do the same, provided that the articles are not sold for a profit. Implementation details will soon be made available on the Center for Digital Scholarship web page. In the meantime, Faculty are encouraged to send an electronic copy of future accepted manuscripts to scholarsarchive@oregonstate.edu.
