We encourage you to point authors to OA policy resources by using these transferable “ads” for:
- UC library sites
- Departmental sites
- Email to authors
- Social media posts
- Meetings and presentations
The ads are included below, with the HTML code that can be used to easily embed them in other locations. We can also provide larger images suitable for digital signage (see high resolution image below).
We would love to hear suggestions about other ways to spread the word about the policy. Please contact us at email@example.com with questions and feedback.
Please also visit the UC OA policies wiki outreach page, available for UC campus library staff to easily share work, gather ideas, and collaborate on ways to effectively get the word out about the UC Open Access Policies.
