SUNY Open Access Policy

Draft and adopt an open access policy.

Background

In March of 2018, the SUNY Trustees charged all state-run SUNY campuses with the development and implementation an open access policy that recognizes each campuses' unique mission and culture, utilizes a process that follows local faculty governance procedures, and includes the faculty, student, and staff protections and best practices identified in the Trustees' memorandum. 

This guide was developed to support the process at Upstate Medical University, but most of the information is relevant to all SUNY campuses.
