Open Access Policy Resources

The KU Faculty Open Access Policy asserts faculty rights to make their published scholarly articles openly available. In 2009, via a vote by Faculty Senate, KU became the 1st public institution to adopt an open access policy after Harvard, MIT, and Stanford’s School of Education. As of 2019, over 75 US universities, public and private, have adopted similar policies. As the Provost’ Designate under the policy, the Shulenburger Office supports faculty in making their scholarly work as visible as possible in a variety of ways.  

The resources listed below include documentation and supporting information for KU faculty interested in leveraging the OA policy to share their work widely. Additional resources, including easy steps to make scholarly articles open, and ways the Shulenburger Office can help are available at Getting Started.
