Open Access Task Force

Open Access to Research Task Force

The Open Access to Research Articles Act became law on August 9, 2013. This law requires Eastern Illinois University to establish an Open Access to Research Task Force, which must:

Consider how the public university can best further the open access goals laid out in the act, whether by creation of an open access policy for the public university, creation of an open access policy for the state, or some other mechanism;

Review how peer institutions and the federal government are addressing issues related to open access and ensure that any institutional or statewide policies are consistent with steps taken by federal grant-making agencies; and

Consider academic, legal, ethical and fiscal ramifications of and questions regarding an open access policy.

 

Proposed Policy

The EIU Open Access to Research Task Force has approved a draft EIU policy. The proposed policy is available here. Comments on the draft policy may be sent to any member of the committee (see the membership list at left). Task force members will present the draft policy to various Eastern faculty and administrative groups during October, including the President's Council, Academic Leadership Team, Faculty Senate, and the Council on Graduate Studies.
