Open Access White Paper

Science Commons and SPARC have teamed up on Open Doors and Open Minds: What Faculty Authors Can Do to Ensure Open Access To Their Work Through Their Institution. This is a White Paper directed to faculty and researchers interested in promoting open access policies at their respective institutions.

Thinh Nguyen, Science Commons counsel, wrote the paper, which explains why the policy adopted by the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences breaks new ground in the movement toward open access. The paper then suggests practical steps that faculty can take to promote adoption of a similar deposit policy and institutional copyright license.
