University of California starts mandatory open access on 1st November…

“The University of California [has] introduced an Open Access Policy [which] grants the UC a license to its faculty’s work by default, and requires them to provide the UC with copy of their peer-reviewed papers on the paper’s publication date. The UC then posts the paper online to eScholarship, its open access publishing site, where the paper will be available to anyone, free of charge. […] On November 1, faculty will be automatically enrolled in the UC’s open access policy.”
