Lawrence, Edwards,
The faculty of the University of Kansas (KU) is committed to
sharing the intellectual fruits of its research and scholarship as
widely as possible and lowering barriers to its access. In
recognition of that commitment and responsibility, the KU faculty is
determined to take advantage of new technologies to increase
access to its work by the citizens of Kansas and scholars,
educators, and policymakers worldwide. In support of greater
openness in scholarly endeavors, the KU faculty agrees to the
Each faculty member grants to KU permission to make scholarly
peer-reviewed journal articles to which he or she made substantial
intellectual contributions publicly available in the KU open access
institutional repository, and to exercise the copyright in those
articles. In legal terms, the permission granted by each faculty
member is a nonexclusive, irrevocable, paid-up, worldwide license
to exercise any and all rights under copyright relating to each of
his or her scholarly articles, in any medium, and to authorize
others to do the same, provided that he articles are not sold for a
profit. This license in no way irrevocably interferes with the rights
of the KU faculty author as the copyright holder of the work.
The policy will apply to all scholarly peer-reviewed journal articles
