Columbia University Libraries (02 Jun 2011)



Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Columbia University Libraries/Information Services have adopted open access policies. They call for faculty members and officers of administration to make their research articles freely available to the public through online repositories, such as Academic Commons, Columbia’s open access digital repository. Each officer or other professional staff member who is the author or co-author of a work of scholarship (see the scope of works as defined below) shall submit to the digital repository based at Columbia University (the current repository is known as Academic Commons), a copy of such work, together with any bibliographic or citation information. The author hereby grants to The Trustees of Columbia University in the City of New York a nonexclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide license to exercise any and all rights under copyright relating to all such works of scholarship, created after the adoption of this resolution, solely for the purpose of providing and maintaining public access to them. This resolution does not alter copyright ownership rights determined in accordance with law or the Columbia University Copyright Policy. Many scholars based at Columbia University currently make some or all of their works available through other publicly accessible repositories such as arXiv or PubMed Central. In lieu of submission of a work to Academic Commons, an author may satisfy the terms of this resolution by making such work available through an alternative repository of the author’s choosing, provided that such repository makes the work accessible in full-text to the public, without costs or other restrictions (other than customary embargoes) imposed on any individual user, and that it offers to preserve and maintain access to the work indefinitely.
