Harvard University Unveils New OA License for Researchers

The Harvard Library Office for Scholarly Communication introduced the voluntary Individual Open-Access License (IOAL), which all Harvard researchers can use regardless of whether they are faculty members—for example, they can be administrators, librarians, post-docs, or students. It gives everyone the same benefits: Harvard and authors both get non-exclusive rights. This means that authors have more rights to reuse their own works than would be given to them by standard publishers; they retain ownership and copyright. And Harvard can make the works available in its university OA repository.

The office notes, “The IOAL is a key step for Harvard staff and students who want to open their scholarly articles, and share them on the web, reuse them in publications, conferences, teaching, or other purposes.”

For more information, read the news.
