WIU Open Access Committee

Illinois Public Act 98-0295 requires public universities to appoint Open Access to Research Task Forces that will "consider how the university can best further the open access goals laid out in" the Act, "review how peer institutions and the federal government are addressing issues related to open access and ensure that any institutional or statewide policies are consistent with steps taken by federal grant-making agencies" and "consider academic, legal, ethical, and fiscal ramifications of and questions regarding an open access policy."
