"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

How many of the institution’s research-producing divisions are covered by a published open access policy that ensures that versions of future scholarly articles by faculty and staff are deposited in a designated open access repository? (All, Some or None):
Some

Which of the following best describes the open access policy? (Mandatory or Voluntary):
Voluntary (strictly opt-in)

Does the institution provide financial incentives to support faculty members with article processing and other open access publication charges?:
No

A brief description of the open access policy, including the date adopted, any incentives or supports provided, and the repository(ies) used:

Pacific doesn't have any open access mandates (which require deposit of scholarly articles in our institutional repository). However, we do have two resolutions in support of open access that were approved in 2011. The first was approved by the faculty of the College of Health Professions (attached). The second was approved by both Faculty Senate and University Council, and covers faculty, staff, and student scholarship (also attached).

Again, there is no mandatory deposit associated with these, but they do indicate support for open access to institutional research products and describe an institutionally supported open-access repository (CommonKnowledge).

2. Does the institution provide financial incentives to support faculty members with article processing and other open access publication charges?
If yes, provide a brief description of the open access policy, including the date adopted, any incentives or supports provided, and the repository(ies) used

Pacific does not have a formal policy or process for funding article processing/publication charges for faculty authors. However, individual departments, as well as the Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects, have in the past considered ad hoc requests from faculty and provided financial support for article processing charges for open access publication.
