Rutgers University passed an open access policy by a near unanimous vote of the University Senate, October 2012.
The policy goes into effect September 1, 2015
Open access at Rutgers showcases all university scholarship in one place, preserves access over time, allows authors to retain rights to their works, and ensures greater visibility and impact for Rutgers research worldwide. With this policy, Rutgers joins the ranks of premier research institutions which support open access, and responds to the call for increased public access to taxpayer-funded research.
The Rutgers open access policy is for all Rutgers faculty and scholars, and applies mainly to scholarly articles (as the publisher allows). The policy will accommodate disciplinary differences, and focus on public access for readers and researchers. The policy will be prospective, and opt-outs and embargoes are accommodated for any article. Implementation planning is currently underway.
