Faculty involved in governance at Virginia Tech are beginning to explore options for an open access policy, which would enable greater sharing of our research. This session, led by a member of the policy working group, covers the definition of open access, the policy rationale, benefits to faculty, how other universities have implemented policies, and the potential working details of a policy. Participants will learn about the current open access environment and have an opportunity to give feedback that would shape a potential faculty policy.
