Monthly Downloads from MIT Faculty Open Access Collection Hit New Peak

Three years after the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy was established, monthly downloads from the collection of articles made available under the Policy continue to grow, reaching a new high of 30,000 in February 2012.

This news is reported as we mark the third anniversary (on March 18) of the faculty’s precedent-setting policy, the first university-wide faculty policy of its kind in the United States.
