The rationales in ASCSU Resolution 3376-19/FA list many reasons for a Green Open Access Policy. Besides these, we should also note the following.
On Dec 14, 2020 (and previously on November 5, 2018, September 18, 2017, and March 20, 2017), the Academic Senate University Library Committee unanimously passed an Open Access policy (fully entitled, “Retention of Faculty Rights to Deposit and Disseminate Their Scholarly Articles: An Open Access Policy”). Academic Senators and the general Faculty can get a good, quick overview of the Open Access policy by reading pages 2-7 of this packet. Those wishing to investigate further can find supplemental material in the appendices.
Pollak Library devoted its second What's Brewing event on February 8, 2017, to considering a Green Open Access Journal Article Archiving policy for Cal State Fullerton. Chris Kelty of UCLA, a key proponent in passing the UC system's Open Access policy, keynoted the event, followed by a panel of CSUF faculty.
Mark Bilby and Karen Vasquez created the Green Open Access Policy Infographic below. A full transcription of this Green Open Access Policy Infographic is also available, and it has the same content as the infographic slides linked below.
For those interested in the nuts and bolts of a Green Open Access policy, Stuart Shieber and Peter Suber of Harvard have assembled a widely endorsed, online guide to good practices for University faculties who want to pass and implement Green Open Access policies.
