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

The Health Sciences Library at UC provides an OA Guide created by the UC Health Sciences Library on the NIH Public Access Policy and Public Access Mandates. To help advance science and improve human health, the Policy requires that these papers are accessible to the public on PubMed Central no later than 12 months after publication. In addition, the UC Digital Resource Commons is a repository available to all UC researchers. The University is in the process of creating incentives for faculty to use the repository, and the Faculty Senate is currently considering the adoption of a more comprehensive open access policy.
