Institution's/Department's OA Self-Archiving Policy


The Library Faculty of the University of Oregon are committed to
disseminating the fruits of their research and scholarship as widely
as possible. In keeping with that commitment, the Faculty adopts the
following policy:

Each Library faculty member gives to the University of Oregon
nonexclusive permission to use and make available that author's
scholarly articles for the purpose of open dissemination.
Specifically, each Library faculty member grants a Creative Commons
"Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States"
license to each of his or her scholarly articles. The license will
apply to all scholarly articles written while the person is a member
of the Library Faculty except for any articles accepted for
publication before the adoption of this policy and any articles for
which the Faculty member entered into an incompatible licensing or
assignment agreement before the adoption of this policy. The Dean of
the Libraries will waive application of the policy for a particular
article upon written notification by the author, who informs the UO
of the reason.

To facilitate distribution of the scholarly articles, as of the date
of publication, each faculty member will make available an electronic
copy of the author's final version of the article and full citation
at no charge to a designated representative of the Libraries in
appropriate formats (such as PDF) specified by the Libraries. After
publication, the University of Oregon Libraries will make the
scholarly article available to the public in the UO's institutional

Our expectation is that we will develop an implementation of this
policy that includes a blanket license signed by each faculty member
as part of their regular contract renewal (to meet the "in writing"
requirements of 17 USC 205(d)), plus suggestions for how to negotiate
with publishers. We believe that in most cases no addendum to
publishing contracts is needed, but in cases where such an addendum
is needed the resolution puts the author in a stronger bargaining
