MIT adopts Open Access policy

By a unanimous vote of its faculty on March 18, MIT now mandates that its faculty must provide an electronic copy of the final version of a journal article for inclusion in the institution's digital repository. As with Harvard's recent mandate, there is an opt-out allowance, provided the faculty member informs MIT of the reason. MIT's press release is here:
