Harvard scholars launch Good Practices for University Open-Access Policies

Stuart Schieber, Professor of Computer Science and the Director of the Office for Scholarly Communication at Harvard University, and Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Open Access Project, Special Advisor to the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication, and Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, have just compiled a document–intended to evolve–titled “Good Practices for University Open-Access Policies.” Based on policies adopted at Harvard, Duke, Stanford, MIT, Princeton, Kansas, UC San Francisco, and over a dozen other universities over the past three years, it includes recommendations that should be useful to institutions with other sorts of OA policy as well.  The document is based on a recommendation (4.2) developed and published in the report that came from last month’s tenth-year anniversary of the Budapest Open Access Initiative.
