LoomWare: UPEI Senate Approves Open Access Policy

abernard102@gmail.com 2012-06-01


โ€œAfter a lengthy but very fruitful process UPEI's Senate approved a new open access policy. Some highlights of the policy: [1] โ€˜immediate deposit of scholarly articles (including faculty, grad student and undergraduate works) in the UPEI repository is encouraged (a mandate was not considered a viable option - next time...); [2] encouragement for scholars to retain copyright, including a reference to the SPARC addendum; [3] deposit of research data into a UPEI Virtual Research Environment is also encouraged, along with links to the final scholarly work. IslandScholar.ca is the UPEI open access repository, and it is currently undergoing a major re-architecture with a new launch this summer. The UPEI effort is also a key part of the new Islandora Institutional Repository Solution Pack, which will be released this summer as well.โ€
