Harvard University encouraged faculty members to publish research in open access journals

Because of the rise in subscription costs charged by academic publishers, Harvard University has encouraged its faculty members to make their research freely available through open access journals.

“We faculty do the research, write the papers, referee papers by other researchers, serve on editorial boards, all of it for free … and then we buy back the results of our labour at outrageous prices,” said Robert Darnton, director of Harvard Library.
