The MIT Libraries has launched a new scholarly publishing website: a one-stop shop for information and resources about the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy, research funder requirements for publications and data, copyright law, and publishing support.
Through the site you can:
- deposit a paper to the Open Access Articles collection of DSpace@MIT;
- get download statistics for your papers in DSpace;
- learn how to comply with public access policies resulting from a 2013 White House directive;
- get information on how to use others’ work in your thesis;
- apply for funds to offset open access journal fees.
The site was built by staff from the Libraries’ Department of Scholarly Communications & Collections Strategy (SCCS). SCCS supports MIT faculty and researchers who have questions about their options and rights in the world of scholarly publishing, which has evolved dramatically in the digital age. We are guided by the values, principles, and aims expressed in the MIT OA policy and the Institute-Wide Task Force on the Future of Libraries.
