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;
  • Automated publication harvesting and notification system for UC authors, to reduce the need for manual deposit; and
  • Support for the generation of embargo, waiver, and addendum forms, at the author’s request.

The timeline for this work is as follows:

Nov 1, 2013 Faculty deposit implemented for UCSF, UCLA, UCI
May 2014 6-month review by Academic Senate
June 2014 Harvesting tool project completed for UCSF, UCLA, UCI
July/Aug 2014 Review of harvesting tool by Academic Senate
Nov 1, 2014 Faculty deposit implemented for remaining UC campuses, contingent on Senate reviews
June 2015 Harvesting tool implemented for remaining UC campuses, contingent on Senate reviews, funding

Visit the Open Access Policy Implementation (OAPI) wiki to track the progress of the project, 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.
