IUPUI Open Access Policy

The IUPUI Faculty Council adopted an open access policy on October 7th, 2014. This policy shows IUPUI's commitment to disseminating the fruits of research and scholarship as widely as possible. Open access policies increase authors’ rights, readership and citation rates for scholarly articles. The opt out provision ensures that all faculty authors have the freedom to publish in the journal of their choice.
