Good Practices for University Open-Access Policies (new print and PDF editions)
peter.suber's bookmarks 2015-10-19
"Since 2011, with input and feedback from colleagues around the world, +Stuart Shieber and I have been developing recommendations for university policies on open access to faculty research. We released the first edition of our guide during Open Access Week 2012, and have enlarged and improved it ever since.
We keep the master version on a wiki to make this kind of continual revision easy. Although the wiki version has received more than 97,000 views to date, some users prefer to read or share the guide in other formats. In Open Access Week 2013, we released the first print and PDF editions (capturing the wiki text from September 2013), and in OA Week this year, we're pleased to release the second print and PDF editions (capturing the wiki text from September 2015).
The wiki edition will still contain the latest updates. But the new editions should make the guide more versatile and useful. Like the wiki edition and the previous print and PDF editions, the new editions stand under Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) licenses...."
