Open Access @ Grinnell College

On Monday, 15 April 2013, the Grinnell College Faculty voted in favor of a resolution presented by the Open Access Task Force, committing themselves to expanding access to their forthcoming scholarly articles. According to the resolution, faculty give Grinnell College permission to disseminate worldwide and without cost through the Digital Grinnell repository, any scholarly articles published in peer-reviewed journals after April 15. The resolution also encourages faculty and staff to make their syllabi and other curricular material and other scholarly publications freely available through Digital Grinnell. 

The resolution is modeled on one adopted by the Harvard University of Faculty of Arts and Sciences in 2008 and by over 50 colleges and universities in the United States, and many more abroad, since then. It recognizes that digital technologies can expand access to learning and scholarship in ways not possible with a paper-based publishing system, for the benefit of learners across the world and the scholarly authors as well.

Over the summer, the Libraries and the Dean's Office will develop practical guides to help faculty implement the resolution. Questions may be directed to Richard Fyffe, Librarian of the College. Read more about Open Access at Grinnell College.
