UCSF Open Access Policy

UCSF Open Access Policy

Making your Publications available to the Public

The UCSF Academic Senate passed an Open Access Policy for UCSF on May 21, 2012. See a 90-second video for an overview, and find more details here.

UCSF Academic Senate faculty can use the UC Publication Management system to upload their publications to eScholarship (UC's open access repository). Authors will be contacted by email to verify publications in the system. Use this system to track your publications and to share your scholarly articles via eScholarship or by linking to another open access version.
