We encourage you to point authors to OA policy resources by using these transferable “ads” for:

  • UC library sites
  • Departmental sites
  • Blogs
  • 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 osc@ucop.edu with questions and feedback.
