Abstract

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.
