HOPE Makes It Work at Harvard
September 14, 2009—The Office for Scholarly Communication (OSC) is managing Harvard's participation in the Open-Access Compact through the Harvard Open-Access Publication Equity (HOPE) Fund. Through HOPE, Harvard will reimburse eligible authors for open-access processing fees.
Initially, HOPE will serve members of the four Harvard faculties—Arts and Sciences, Education, Government, and Law—that have formally adopted open-access policies. Faculty, researchers, staff, and students may request reimbursement for articles connected with their research activities at these schools.
As additional faculties activate open-access policies, they will automatically become HOPE-eligible.
To guide HOPE users, OSC has posted a detailed Q&A at http://osc.hul.harvard.edu/HOPE.
