Guide on Good Practices for University Open-Access Policies

Berkman Center for Internet & Society: “Since 2011, with input and feedback from colleagues around the world, Stuart Shieber and Peter Suber have been developing recommendations for university policies on open access to faculty research. They released the first edition of their guide during Open Access Week 2012, and they’ve spent the year since then steadily enlarging and improving it. They keep the master version of the guide on a wiki to make continual revision easy. Although the wiki version has received nearly 40,000 views to date, some users prefer to read or share the guide in other formats. Today, in Open Access Week 2013, Stuart and Peter are pleased to release the first print and PDF editions. The new editions use the text as it stood in late September 2013.”
