Pacific University Open Access Resolution Passes

On December 8th, the University Council of Pacific University, a governance body composed of representatives from the undergraduate and graduate student bodies, the faculty and the staff and administration, voted unanimously in support of a resolution [PDF] that encourages more open and accessible scholarly practices.  The resolution had previously been approved by the Faculty Senate (November 2011).
