UC Office of the President invites comments on a 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.
You can access the proposed policy at http://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/academic-personnel-policy/policies-under-review/pres-policy-openaccess-thesesanddiss.html
Comments should be submitted no later than Feb. 22, 2018, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
