MIT adopts a university-wide OA mandate

On Wednesday, March 18, MIT adopted a university-wide OA mandate. For the full text, see Open Access News.

This is important, because it is the second university-wide mandate in the U.S., after Boston University, and the first U.S, university-wide mandate adopted unanimously by faculty themselves. It iis a strong mandate, and a great role model for anyone considering an open access policy.
