|UC Open Access Faculty Policy Print Page|
The UC Academic Senate approved a system-wide open access policy last summer. UCSC and most other campuses are set to enact the policy in the 2014-15 academic year (although a waiver is available on a case-by-case basis). The goal of the policy is to ensure free public access to research articles authored by UC faculty. You will benefit by having your research widely and publicly available, you may still re-use it for various purposes, modify it for future research publications, and potentially have this help fulfill grant requirements.
