Publisher Communications about the UC OA Policy

The University of California Open Access Policy was widely publicized after its adoption, both by UC itself and by other news sources. In addition, UC contacted approximately 200 publishers directly, and continues to contact more. The publishers listed at the bottom of this page were sent a letter explaining that the policy gave UC faculty the right to deposit a version of their article in an open access repository, and that the policy was effective immediately. They were also sent a copy of the full text of the policy and an FAQ.

Even though the vast majority of publishers that UC faculty work with have now known about the policy for over a year, very few publishers have been asking authors to opt out by getting a waiver, and even fewer appear to be doing so consistently. No publisher has notified UC that it plans to request waivers from all UC faculty as a matter of course.

Below are the number of waivers requested by UC faculty authors between August 2, 2013, when the UC-wide policy was announced, and November 1, 2014. These numbers are updated every three months. Faculty obtaining waivers are not asked whether they are doing so at a publisher’s request or for other reasons such as an author’s own preference. Waivers are available from the Waiver and Embargo page.

Note: this does not include the approximately 300 waivers created for UCSF authors between the adoption of their policy on May 21, 2012 and the announcement of the UC-wide policy, but it does include UCSF waivers for August 2, 2013 onward.

Agreements with publishers

Some publishers have agreed to clarify their support for the rights of UC authors in the context of the UC libraries’ negotiations to license their content. License agreements with these publishers now include language protecting the rights of all UC authors – not just Senate faculty – to share their work in an open access repository even if the publisher’s default terms for other authors would normally limit that right. Redacted versions of these agreements are available from California Digital Library:
