Re: new faculty and IR publications

Another personal opinion:

(1) Deposit all refereed journal postprints, of all institutional researchers, in the IR.

(2) If the publisher is Green on some OA repository or other (regardless of whether institutional or central), consider it Green, simpliciter, and set access in the IR as OA immediately upon acceptance for publication.

(3) If the publisher is not Green, deposit in the IR immediately on acceptance just the same, and set access as Closed Access if you wish.

(4) Make sure the IR has the semi-automatic "email eprint request" Button (to provide access during any Closed Access embargo period).

that only if the researcher did the work at our university??
I'd have to query the RoMEO database to answer that.

Again, my personal opinion: if the text says "Deposit in a Subject or Institutional Repository", then multiple deposits are fair game. If, on the other hand, the text says "Deposit in a single Subject or Institutional Repository" you need to decide which one (and this will be a problem for the likes of Physics, where pretty much everything seems to go into aXive :) )
