Since its launch in October 2009 to support the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy, articles in the MIT Open Access Articles collection have been downloaded from nearly every country in the world.
The collection now contains 2,500 articles, downloaded over 100,000 times, at a recent rate of over 13,000 downloads per month.
Faculty may contribute articles by uploading the author’s final manuscript, post peer-review, via a web form, or sending it to the OA Policy Submission list.
If an author has already submitted the final manuscript to a preprint server or repository (e.g. arXiv), the author may email the paper’s identifying repository number, or the URL, instead of the paper.
