Open Access Policy at UW-Madison

UW-Madison does not currently have an open access policy in place.

In Spring of 2016, the University Library Committee (a campus shared governance committee made up of faculty, staff, and students) drafted a resolution in support of an open access policy for UW-Madison. A draft policy was circulated to various campus governance groups including the Faculty Senate. Feedback on the policy was collected and has been used to develop these information resources.
