American Physical Society Confirms Full Support of MIT Faculty Open Access Policy (January 29, 2010)
The American Physical Society (APS) has confirmed that they are fully cooperating with the new MIT Faculty Open Access Policy.
Joe Serene, APS Treasurer and Publisher, comments that “APS was among the earliest publishers to support Green Open Access, and has long allowed authors to post our published version of their papers on an institutional repository, immediately after publication. Our goals and our copyright agreement align well with the goals of the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy, and we are delighted to have reached an agreement with MIT that allows authors to publish in APS journals without waivers of the MIT policy or addenda to our copyright agreement.”
Because the APS is allowing MIT to obtain copies of their final published articles from their website, authors do not need to submit their manuscripts in order for them to appear in DSpace@MIT. This will happen automatically.
