Open Access, Self-Archiving, and Long-Term Digital Stewardship for University of North Texas Scholarly Works

Connotea Imports 2012-07-31


"As a public research university, [the University of North Texas] recognizes and values its responsibility to the larger society. Scholarly products — the innovations, scholarship, and creative endeavors of its faculty, and the education provided to its students — benefit the communities the university serves. By providing access to scholarly works, Federal, State, private, and public support of research and scholarship will be enhanced at UNT. Therefore, UNT is obligated to make its faculty scholarship available to the widest possible audience by adopting an open access mechanism for UNT Community Members’ scholarly products....In support of long-term stewardship and preservation of UNT Community Members’ scholarly works in digital form, UNT Community Members agree to the following:...Each UNT Community Member deposits in the UNT Libraries scholarly works repository a final version of his/her scholarly works to which he or she made intellectual contributions. The determination of what comprises a final version is made by the community member...." (Approved February 1, 2012, and effective on the same date.)
