MIT has launched a new way for authors of scholarly articles to legally hold onto rights to reuse and post their articles, and for others to more easily build on that work. As of April 2017, all MIT authors, including students, postdocs, and staff, can opt in to an open access license. Read the announcement from Maria Zuber, MIT's vice president for research, and the backstory in the MIT News.
MIT faculty passed an open access policy in 2009; as of April 2017, all MIT authors can opt in to open access via a license. Learn more about how to make papers openly available, get download statistics on your papers, or waive the policies.
