The Tech reports that MIT Will Publish All Faculty Articles Free In Online Repository:
Faculty voted unanimously this week to approve a resolution that allows MIT to freely and publicly distribute research articles they write. MIT plans to create a repository to make these articles available online. The resolution, effective immediately after it was passed on Wednesday, makes MIT the first university to commit to making its faculty’s research papers publicly available. Though the School of Education at Stanford and several departments at Harvard have already adopted these policies, MIT is the first entire university to make this pledge.
- Boston University goes Open Access,
- Harvard to disseminate scholarly articles,
- University of Hertfordshire ... institutional commitment to increasing open access.
