"Every person who conducts research at the University of Pennsylvania is strongly encouraged to grant to the University of Pennsylvania nonexclusive permission to make publicly available his or her scholarly articles for the purpose of open dissemination. Effective as of the date of endorsement by the Faculty Senate, faculty and other researchers will be invited, at their discretion, to grant to the University of Pennsylvania a nonexclusive, irrevocable, paid-up, worldwide right and license to exercise any and all rights necessary under copyright to reproduce, distribute, display and otherwise disseminate, in any medium now known or hereinafter invented, each of his or her scholarly articles, provided that the scholarly articles are not sold or licensed by the University for compensation, and to authorize others to do the same on the same terms and with the same limitations....If a Penn faculty author (or if no Penn faculty member is an author, the submitting author) requests an embargo, the Penn Libraries will embargo the scholarly article for the requested time period, before making it available to the public, except when (1) the author has a legal obligation to make the scholarly article publicly available within an earlier time period, the embargo should not exceed that earlier time period; or (2) the publisher of the publication within which such scholarly article appears makes such scholarly article freely available to the public for further reproduction or distribution, the embargo period should terminate...."
