On January 1, 2014, a new open-access policy for faculty’s scholarly writings will take effect at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). According to this policy, approved by the faculty at their June 10 meeting, all faculty members will automatically grant nonexclusive rights to the Institute to disseminate their scholarly papers, making wider distribution of their work possible and eliminating confusion about copyright when posting research results on Caltech’s websites.
The December 9th issue of Science has 6 new papers from the Mars Science Laboratory. These papers are freely available via links in Caltech’s Institutional Repository, Caltech AUTHORS:
