MIT and Open Access

Image: Ask Me About Open Access by mollyali

MIT faculty have unanimously voted to begin the policy of posting scholarly journal articles in their online, open-source DSpace platform.

The policy gives "MIT and its faculty 'the right to use and share the articles for any purpose other than to make a profit.'”

Hmm...the policy gives them the right, but does this mean they've worked out the contracts with publishers like Elsevier?
