Another faculty steps up for open access. This time it’s Stanford’s School of Education that has voted to deposit their scholarship in open access format.
The resolution has an opt-out provision, which it seems to me quite necessary for buy-in and for realism. But the school commits to making their faculty member’s research available through a university repository.
This kind of resolution, it seems to me, would have been unimaginable a few years ago. Now the effort’s paying off; it’s really snowballing.
