Feedback form is now closed.
Since the adoption of UC’s open access policies (UCSF Academic Senate policy in 2012, Systemwide Academic Senate policy in 2013, and UC Presidential policy in 2015), researchers have been encouraged to make their publications publicly accessible in eScholarship, UC's open access repository and publishing platform. The public now benefits from nearly 46,000 UC open access articles, and enthusiasm to participate has increased across campuses.

The UC Publication Management System, an implementation of Symplectic Elements, supports policy participation, automating much of the process of identifying and submitting articles. The system rollout to Academic Senate members began with a well-planned pilot developed in partnership between CDL and pilot campuses UC Irvine, UCLA, and UCSF. The lessons learned were integral to the smooth implementations at the remaining campuses.

Now we are ready to open this system, in phases, to the significantly greater number of UC employees who fall under the Presidential policy.

In this workshop, we will lead a conversation on the Presidential policy pilot plan, its anticipated challenges and concerns, and how we propose to address them. We also aim to gain feedback on the pilot plan and what we may be missing -- your feedback is instrumental to a successful pilot.
