KnowledgeSpeak reports that the University of Kansas’ “University Senate unanimously approved a resolution adopting principles of open access at the university. The resolution outlines two key components. First, it encourages KU scholars to publish in open access journals and/or archive their articles in KU’s open-access digital repository, KU ScholarWorks…”
“Second, it encourages the libraries to include open access as a guiding principle in journal negotiations for the university and to “prioritize openness by crafting agreements that advance open access and other methods of open dissemination for research outputs.”
