American Meteorological Society Confirms Full Cooperation With MIT Faculty Open Access Policy

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) has confirmed that their recently adopted policy on open access repositories is fully consistent with the new MIT Faculty Open Access Policy.


The AMS, which publishes 13 journals, including the Journal of Climate and Monthly Weather Review, has just established a new policy to support the “increasing demand for institutions to provide open access to the published research being produced at that institution.” Their policy allows for the posting of the published articles into a repository like MIT’s DSpace@MIT.

Because the AMS is allowing MIT to obtain copies of their final published articles from their website, authors do not need to submit their manuscripts in order for them to appear in DSpace@MIT. This will happen automatically.

To review other confirmed publisher responses to the policy, please see: Publishers and the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy. Publishers are being added to this web page as information becomes available. Please send any questions about publishers not yet on the page to
