3 Years, 5000 Papers: MIT Faculty Open Access Articles Continue to Grow

Posted March 19th, 2012 by Ellen Duranceau

Three years after the MIT faculty established their Open Access Policy, more than 5,000 papers have been made available through the Policy.

By the end of 2011, 60% of MIT faculty had papers deposited in the Open Access Articles Collection, making their work openly available to the world.

March 18 marked the third anniversary of the faculty’s precedent-setting policy, the first university-wide faculty policy of its kind in the United States.
