Implementation Plan

Following the adoption of the UC Open Access Policy on July 24, 2013, the California Digital Library and its UC campus partners have begun working to build tools and services that will support participation in the Policy, including:

  • An enhanced and streamlined workflow for depositing articles into UC’s eScholarship open access repository;
  • An automated harvesting tool to gather information about faculty publications, send notification of discovered publications to UC faculty authors, and further simplify deposit; and
  • Support for the generation of embargo, waiver, and addendum forms, at the author’s request.

The timeline for this work is summarized below:

November 2013 Faculty deposit implemented for UCSF, UCLA, UCI; OSC site released
October 2014 6-month review of OA Policy implementation by UCOLASC (University Committee on Library and Scholarly Communication)Harvesting tool launched for UCSF, UCLA, UCI
November 2014 Faculty deposit implemented for remaining 7 campuses, contingent on Senate reviews
May 2015 Review of harvesting tool by Academic Senate
September 2015 Harvesting tool implemented for remaining UC campuses, contingent on Senate reviews, funding

Visit the Open Access Policy Implementation (OAPI) wiki to see a more detailed timeline, learn more about the various components, and view related documents.

Faculty at all 10 UC campuses are welcome to deposit articles in eScholarship, UC’s open access repository and publishing platform, at any time.

We currently support a waiver/embargo/addendum request form for all 10 UC campuses.
