In the near future, UC San Diego faculty will join their colleagues at other UC campuses as participants in the UC Publications Management System, ensuring compliance with the University’s Open Access Policy, approved by the UC Academic Senate on July 24, 2013. Since then, UC San Diego Librarians and Academic Senate members have worked to increase awareness of the policy and its many benefits to faculty.

UC Open Access Policy grants UC a non-exclusive license prior to any contractual arrangements faculty authors have with publishers. The manuscripts of published articles can then be made widely and publicly available through the UC eScholarship repository, enabling students, scholars, and the general public to access them at no charge, which increases readership of and citations to the work. Click here to view the full text of UC’s Open Access policy and other useful information.

Once launched, the UC publications management system will monitor selected publication data sources to identify new journal articles by UC San Diego faculty authors. When the system identifies new articles that are authored or co-authored by faculty members, authorship is then confirmed and manuscripts will automatically be uploaded to eScholarship.

UC San Diego librarians are available to answer questions and provide assistance with the UC Open Access Policy and can also provide guidance on how best to broadly disseminate and preserve published research. For assistance, contact the Library’s Open Access Policy Team at oapolicy@ucsd.edu or visit http://ucsd.libguides.com/scholcom.
