Following the passage of the Faculty Senate open access resolution on April 6, UD became a full member of COAPI.

COAPI brings together representatives from universities with established faculty open access policies to facilitate the sharing of information and experiences with open access policy implementation and opportunities for moving faculty-led open access forward at member institutions.

The coalition is committed to the following: 

  • The immediate and barrier-free online dissemination of scholarly research resulting in faster growth of new knowledge, increased impact of research, and improved return on public research investments.
  • Developing and implementing institutional open access policies.
  • Sharing experiences and best practices in the development and implementation of open access policies with individuals at institutions interested in cultivating cultures of open access.
  • Fostering a more open scholarly communication system through cultural and legislative change at the local, national, and international levels.

Information about the University’s open access policy is available online at this website.
