"New Penn State Open Access Policy to Expand Reach of University Research"

Pennsylvania State University has released "New Penn State Open Access Policy to Expand Reach of University Research."

Here's an excerpt:

A new open access policy at Penn State, recently endorsed by the University Faculty Senate, will greatly increase public availability of original, peer-reviewed Penn State scholarly research in support of the University’s land-grant mission. . . .

Under the policy—expected to be implemented by Penn State President Eric Barron in the fall 2019 semester—Penn State researchers will remain free to submit their work to scholarly journals of their choice. The policy also will not transfer copyright ownership of scholarly works to Penn State. In addition, a waiver option in the policy guarantees that researchers are able to opt out of open access for each one of their publications on an individual-article basis; these waivers would be automatically approved.
