EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT
December 6, 2017
ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO
The Office of the President invites comments on a proposed Presidential Policy on Open Access for Theses and Dissertations. The draft new policy is available online at:http://go.ucsd.edu/2dpmhry. The policy includes the following key issues:
· There is currently no systemwide uniformity or policy for ensuring open access to UC graduate students’ theses and dissertations. This policy will provide systemwide consistency for these works.
· Allowance for embargoes that delay the date theses or dissertations are made available in an open access repository.
