Rice Open Access Policy

In 2012, Rice’s Faculty Senate passed an Open Access Policy, directing¬† tenured and tenure-track faculty to deposit copies of all peer-reviewed journal articles in the Rice Digital Scholarship Archive. You can learn more about Rice’s policy here.

While compliance with Rice’s policy will likely not meet most funding agency public access requirements, Fondren Library is currently working on developing workflows to help Rice researchers deposit copies of their publications in the Rice Digital Scholarship Archive and agency repository at the same time. If you are interested in participating, please contact Shannon Kipphut-Smith, Scholarly Communications Liaison, at openaccess@rice.edu or (713) 348-3989.
