Harvard Law School Votes for Open Access
The Harvard Law School faculty has unanimously voted to make each faculty member’s scholarly articles available online for free, making HLS the first law school to commit to open access. From the press release:
Under the new policy, HLS will make articles authored by faculty members available in an online repository, whose contents would be searchable and available to other services such as Google Scholar. Authors can also legally distribute the articles on their own websites, and educators here and elsewhere can freely provide the articles to students, so long as the materials are not used for profit.
