Harvard University has mandated Open Access. Some changes are recommended in the wording of the Harvard policy to increase its likelihood of success and to make it more suitable as a model for other universities. The current draft mandates more than necessary (not just deposit, but copyright retention). As a consequence it has an opt-out clause. The suggested change is to separate the two requirements: Immediate deposit of the refereed final draft (upon acceptance for publication) is mandatory, with no opt-out. Copyright retention is recommended, but with an opt-out option.
