SPEC Kit 311: Public Access Policies · 45
Consultations Three Most Asked Questions: Comments About Consultations
After learning more about open access
and existing public access policies, we are
asked: What can I do in my field to foster
the open access movement? A related
questions is: How do I get started with
keeping my rights so that I can publicly post
my materials? After we show them DOAJ,
faculty are generally impressed with what is
available in their respective fields. If nothing
or very little, the next question generally is:
How do I go about starting an electronic
journal in my field?
We share author addenda and templates for letters when
we meet with faculty and graduate students. We also take
that opportunity to share with them all the services that
the digital repository has to offer.
How do I comply? Does the journal
automatically deposit? What’s the
publisher’s policy? How do I upload?
