This spring, Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences voted to enable open access to their scholarly articles in an institutional repository. This vote granted the university the rights necessary to archive and make freely available on the Internet articles written by Arts and Sciences faculty members. It is the first time the faculty of a U.S. university has voted for an open access directive and the first time a faculty has granted permission to the university to make its articles available through open access. It is because of this vote, and the efforts leading up to it, that the Harvard FAS was named as theSPARC Innovators for June 2008.
