Harvard and American Physical Society Agreement

The Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication and the American Physical Society (APS) announced jointly that they have entered into an agreement to facilitate faculty compliance with the University’s open access policies when Harvard faculty members publish in the APS journals, comprising Physical Review, Physical Review Letters, and Reviews of Modern Physics.
As a result of the new agreement, APS recognizes Harvard’s open access license and will not require copyright agreement addenda or waivers, in exchange for Harvard’s clarification of its intended use of the license. …The main beneficiaries of the Harvard-APS agreement will be physics faculty members, who are no longer obliged to acquire waivers of Harvard’s prior license. In addition, other institutions and their authors may find the agreement to be a useful model in their interactions with APS and other scholarly publishers.
