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.

 

EIU Policy

The EIU Open Access to Research Task Force has approved a policy, which is available here. Task force members presented the policy to various Eastern faculty and administrative groups, including the President's Council, Academic Leadership Team, Faculty Senate and the Council on Graduate Studies, in addition to sponsoring an open Faculty Forum. President William Perry presented the policy to the EIU Board of Trustees on Nov. 7 and is expected to bring it before the President's Council for adoption as an Internal Governing Policy.
