UC Presidential Open Access Policy Issued

On October 26 the University of California issued a presidential open access policy, which allows scholarly articles authored by all UC employees published from the issue date forward to be freely shared with readers worldwide. Building on UC's previously adopted Academic Senate open access policy, it enables the university system and associated national labs to provide broad public access to scholarly research authored by clinical faculty, lecturers, staff researchers, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and librarians, among others.
