Open Access Forum for CWRU Faculty

book with open door

The Faculty Senate Committee on University Libraries and the four University Libraries invite CWRU faculty to participate in a campus forum about a possible proposed policy on Open Access. If approved, the Faculty Open Access Policy would enable broad dissemination of CWRU faculty-authored scholarly articles while also retaining certain rights for faculty that may otherwise be surrendered in the publication process. This would not only advance the scholarly reputation and impact of participating faculty, but also fulfill a commitment to the University's North Star and third Pathway, Achieve Social Impact, which state, "to achieve a deeper impact, we must disseminate our research and teaching more widely beyond our campus...extending access to our classrooms and scholarship to communities that did not have it in the past." A copy of the proposed policy is available here 

Please join us for one of the following sessions:

Tuesday, March 23, 2pm-4pm or Tuesday, March 30, 12pm-1pm.
