Key points:

"- U.S. university OA policies are far less mandatory than those in the U.K.

- The waiver clauses in U.S. university policies make it easy for authors to decline making their articles OA.

- The relative autonomy – and competitiveness – of U.S. universities may be the reason for weaker OA policies.

- OA in the U.S. is likely to be driven by government funding agency policies rather than by academia."
