On March 18th the faculty at Duke University agreed to make their research articles freely available to the public. Like other agreements at Harvard, MIT, and Stanford, Duke faculty will now retain the rights to deposit their articles in their institutional repository.

News like this gets splashed around quite a bit. Some links to get you started:

If you’re interested in Open Access, I suggest following the SC@Duke blog. It’s wonderful.


One thought on “Duke Faculty Join Open Access Movement

  1. Is JHU going to join the Open Access Movement?
    -Timothy

    Dear Timothy,
    Many JHU researchers already post their research online through sites like arXiv and PubMed Central. Others publish in PLoS journals. Some of that is due to the NIH Public Access mandate; other researchers are interested in Open Access. JHU faculty and students may also publish through JScholarship, the library’s open access institutional repository. Winston Tabb, the Sheridan Dean of University Libraries & Museums, is discussing with the upper administration of the university how JHU might proceed along the lines taken by Duke.
