We can all learn from the Harvard model.

Quotes from the Harvard website:
“The Office for Scholarly Communication spearheads campus-wide initiatives to 
open, share, and preserve scholarship. In cooperation with the OSC, faculty at 
eight of Harvard’s schools have put in place default rights-retention 
open-access policies, which have influenced similar policies at universities 
throughout the world. The Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH) 
repository established and operated by the OSC holds more than 12,000 scholarly 
articles, which have been downloaded almost 1.5 million times from every 
continent, some 3,000 downloads per day.”
·       Wellcome Trust extends open access policy.
Wellcome Trust recently announces that it is to extend its open access policy 
to include all scholarly monographs and book chapters written by its 
grantholders as part of their Trust-funded research.
