​The Faculty of the University of California is committed to disseminating
its research and
scholarship as widely as possible. In particular, as part of a public
university system, the Faculty is
dedicated to making its scholarship available to the people of California
and the world.
Furthermore, the Faculty recognizes the benefitsthat accrue to themselves
as individual scholars and
to the scholarly enterprise from such wide dissemination, including greater
recognition, more
thorough review, consideration and critique, and a general increase in
scientific, scholarly and
critical knowledge. Faculty further recognize that by this policy, and with
the assistance of the
University, they can more easily and collectively reserve rights that might
otherwise be signed away,
often unnecessarily, in agreements with publishers. In keeping with these
considerations, and for the
primary purpose of making our scholarly articles widely and freely
accessible, the Faculty adopts the
following policy:​
