UCSF joins trend offering published research free

“UCSF has joined the growing ranks of academic institutions that are offering most, if not all, of their research free to the public, by requiring that all published scientific studies be added by their authors to a university repository accessible to everyone. The policy change at UCSF, which was announced last month, is part of a global shift toward “open access” – improving the exchange of scientific information by allowing free and widespread dissemination of research that has long been contained in subscription-only journals.”
