- November 3, 2014, 2:00-3:30 pm, Geisel Library Building, Seuss Room
What does “deposit their articles” mean?
For any article covered by the policy, faculty should deposit the author’s final version in eScholarship (UC’s open access repository) or deposit it in another OA repository and provide eScholarship with a link. If your publisher requires you to opt out in order to publish with them or if you want to opt out of the policy for a particular article or another reason, you can do that on the waiver and embargo page.
The UC Open Access Policy was passed last year by the UC Academic Senate to ensure “that future research articles authored by faculty at all 10 campuses of UC will be made available to the public at no charge.”
Each Faculty member grants to the University of California a nonexclusive, irrevocable, worldwide license to exercise any and all rights under copyright relating to each of his or her scholarly articles, in any medium, and to authorize others to do the same, for the purpose of making their articles widely and freely available in an open access repository. Any other systematic uses of the licensed articles by the University of California must be approved by the Academic Senate. This policy does not transfer copyright ownership, which remains with Faculty authors under existing University of California policy. (Policy)
