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.

Spotlight: Gravitational waves discovered (again!)

On June 1, the Laser Interferometry Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) announced its third detection of gravitational waves. Check out the discovery paper as well as open access resources on LIGO & gravitational waves: an annotated collection of technical reports, peer-reviewed articles, conference papers, and theses, freely available in the DSpace@MIT repository, that describe work done at MIT, from the earliest science to post-detection research.
