The OA Task Force are gathering support of OA initiatives which includes a letter to President Folt and Interim Provost Graddy.
We support the adoption of an Open Access Initiative at USC consisting of an open access repository, open access policy and open access fund. The open-access repository would serve as a digital repository where scholars can add their peer-reviewed articles (post-publication) for the public to access freely.
