3 When to Deposit Faculty on all UC campuses may deposit now. Faculty at UC Irvine, UCLA, and UCSF are expected to deposit as of November 1, 2013. Faculty on the remaining campuses will be expected to deposit in Fall 2014 (pending Academic Senate review). An automated harvesting system is being built to make deposit even easier. This system will: – Gather information about articles published by UC- affiliated authors – E-mail faculty to verify the data, collect the publication (where necessary), and approve deposit More information at

10 FAQs What do faculty need to do to comply with this policy? The policy automatically grants UC a license to make any scholarly articles available in an open access repository. UC will not do so, however, until an author takes the action of depositing an article in UC’s eScholarship repository or confirms the availability of the article in another open access venue – i.e., a repository (such as PubMed central, ArXiv or SSRN) or an open access journal. What version of their article should Faculty submit to the repository? The policy requires that the author submit the “final version,” which safely means the manuscript copy post-peer review but before a publisher typesets and finalizes it. Does this policy require that faculty publish in particular journals or pay fees or “Article Processing Charges” to publish? No. Faculty are strongly encouraged to continue to publish as normal, in the most appropriate and prestigious journals. No fee is associated with the deposit of an article in eScholarship. Faculty are welcome to publish in journals that charge a fee to make an article open access at the journal website if they choose to do so, but that is not the requirement or the intent of this policy.
