While this toolkit is designed with University of California authors in mind, it can be adapted for institutions with #openaccess institutional repositories like @eScholarship or open access policies like the UC’s OA Policies.
The toolkit was developed by a quartet of volunteers and stakeholders, including our illustrious UC San Diego colleagues; Linguistics professor and Department Chair, Eric Bacović and Earth and Marine Sciences Librarian, Amy Butros. Our highly esteemed partners at the California Digital Library/UCOP’s Alainna Wrigley and Katie Fortney rounded out the dedicated working group.
The UC OA policies have been helping authors make their work available online for over ten years, but what about publications that predate these policies? Authors with publication lists spanning many decades need additional tools to ensure that their collected works are publicly archived. They may have questions like “Where can I share these?” or “Is it a copyright problem to share them?” or even “I don’t have a copy, how do I find this?”Katie Fortney https://osc.universityofcalifornia.edu/2023/09/make-your-collected-works-openly-available-in-escholarship/
