University of Arizona Faculty Senate Passes Open Access Policy

The University of Arizona Faculty Senate has passed an open access policy.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

On April 4, 2016, the University of Arizona Faculty Senate passed an open access policy that calls on the faculty and university to distribute faculty-authored scholarly articles to the widest possible audience through the UA Campus Repository. The new policy was drafted by a faculty task force charged to "review how we as a faculty might act in order to expand access to our scholarly and research outputs."

The task force put forward a framework largely on open access policies previously passed by faculty bodies at universities including Harvard, MIT, Duke, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Penn State, Oregon State University, and the University of California system.
