Spotlight: New milestones for open access policies at MIT

MIT has reached a new open access milestone: 46 percent of faculty members’ articles published since the faculty OA policy passed in 2009 are now being shared in the Open Access Articles Collection of DSpace@MIT. As well, earlier this month, the MIT Libraries celebrated making live in DSpace the first paper to rely on rights retained under the new MIT authors’ opt-in open access license.
