Employee comments sought on open access for theses and dissertations
The University invites comments on a revised proposed Presidential Policy on Open Access for Theses and Dissertations.
The policy is new and includes the following key issues:
- There is currently no systemwide uniformity or policy for ensuring open access to UC graduate students' theses and dissertations. This policy will provide systemwide consistency for these works.
- Allowance for embargoes that delay the date theses or dissertations are made available in an open access repository.
The policy proposal is posted here.
If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact Robin Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 10, 2019.
