Draft IUPUI Open Access Policy and Supporting Materials (August 28, 2014)

The "Draft IUPUI Open Access Policy and Supporting Materials" was developed by the Library Affairs committee of the IUPUI Faculty Council.

This opt-out policy reaffirms and supports the rights of IUPUI faculty authors. The policy is based on model language adopted at Harvard, MIT, Duke, University of California, University of Kansas and many other institutions.

While distributing faculty articles under a nonexclusive license, this policy would bring many benefits to the community, to IUPUI, and to our faculty members. While demonstrating IUPUI's commitment to "open inquiry and dissemination of findings," the policy would also increase citation rates and readership for faculty articles.

As an opt-out policy, these benefits can be achieved at no financial costs to authors and while respecting academic freedom, and intellectual property rights.
