One year later, KU shown to be leader in open access scholarship
From Oread, the Kansas University employee newsletter, on Nov. 15:
It's been just more than a year since KU became the first public university in the United States to implement an open access policy for published scholarship. In that time, the practice of making research available to anyone -- not just journal subscribers -- has grown at KU and around the world.

The libraries oversee KU ScholarWorks, the online open access repository that houses published KU research. The repository can show which works were added specifically in accordance with the open access policy and what documents were added simply to share research. Ada Emmett, associate librarian for scholarly communications, said KU ScholarWorks can show faculty authors how often their research is being downloaded, and where the download is coming from. She cited ecology and evolutionary biology as a department that is taking advantage of open access as a way to expand the reach of its research. Last year, the department had just over 3,000 of its documents downloaded from the repository. So far this year, more than 13,000 have been downloaded. The downloads have been made in more than a dozen countries including the United States, United Kingdom, China, Mexico, Russia and Brazil.
