The University of North Texas is hosting an Open Access Symposium on Tuesday, May 18, 2010.
The symposium is intended as a catalyst to move UNT and other academic institutions in Texas forward in their consideration of institutional open access policies.
The UNT Open Access Policy Committee has completed a first complete draft of a policy for open access to scholarly works at the University of North Texas. The Committee sees this as an initial step in broadening discussion by the UNT campus community on both open access and the policy itself.
The Policy is available here. This draft was distributed to the UNT Faculty Senate at its May 12, 2010 meeting. The Committee will be disseminating information across campus about the policy in the coming weeks.
