*ICAR adopts Open Access policy*

Today (13th September 2013) the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (
ICAR <http://icar.org.in/en/node/6609>) had announced its Open Access
policy on its website <http://icar.org.in/en/node/6609>.

The full-text of Open Access policy of the ICAR is follows:
 ICAR
's Open Access Policy

   - Each ICAR institute to setup an Open Access Institutional Repository.
   - ICAR shall setup a central harvester to harvest the metadata and
   full-text of all the records from all the OA repositories of the ICAR
   institutes for one stop access to all the agricultural knowledge generat=
ed
   in ICAR.
   - All the meta-data and other information of the institutional
   repositories are copyrighted with the ICAR. These are licensed for use,
   re-use and sharing for academic and research purposes. Commercial and ot=
her
   reuse requires written permission.
   - All publications viz., research articles, popular articles,
   monographs, catalogues, conference proceedings, success stories, case
   studies, annual reports, newsletters, pamphlets, brochures, bulletins,
   summary of the completed projects, speeches, and other grey literatures
   available with the institutes to be placed under Open Access.
   - The institutes are free to place their unpublished reports in their
   open access repository. They are encouraged to share their works in publ=
ic
   repositories like YouTube and social networking sites like Facebook =AE,
   Google+, etc. along with appropriate disclaimer.
   - The authors of the scholarly articles produced from the research
   conducted at the ICAR institutes have to deposit immediately the final
   authors version manuscripts of papers accepted for publication (pre-prin=
ts
   and post-prints) in the institute=92s Open Access repository.
   - Scientists and other research personnel of the ICAR working in all
   ICAR institutes or elsewhere are encouraged to publish their research wo=
rk
   with publishers which allow self- archiving in Open Access Institutional
   Repositories.
   - The authors of the scholarly literature produced from the research
   funded in whole or part by the ICAR or by other Public Funds at ICAR
   establishments are required to deposit the final version of the author's
   peer-reviewed manuscript in the ICAR institute=92s Open Access Instituti=
onal
   Repository.
   - Scientists are advised to mention the ICAR=92s Open Access policy whil=
e
   signing the copyright agreements with the publishers and the embargo, if
   any, should not be later than 12 months.
   - M.Sc. and Ph.D. thesis/dissertations (full contents) and summary of
   completed research projects to be deposited in the institutes open acces=
s
   repository after completion of the work. The metadata (e.g., title,
   abstract, authors, publisher, etc.) be freely accessible from the time o=
f
   deposition of the content and their free unrestricted use through Open
   Access can be made after an embargo period not more than 12 months.
   - All the journals published by the ICAR have been made Open Access.
   Journals, conference proceedings and other scholarly literature publishe=
d
   with the financial support from ICAR to the professional societies and
   others, to be made Open.
   - The documents having material to be patented or commercialised, or
   where the promulgations would infringe a legal commitment by the institu=
te
   and/or the author, may not be included in institute=92s Open Access
   repository. However, the ICAR scientists and staff as authors of the
   commercial books may negotiate with the publishers to share the same via
   institutional repositories after a suitable embargo period.

*Implementation*

The DKMA to function as nodal agency for implementation of the ICAR Open
Access policy. The DKMA will organize advocacy workshops and capacity
building of scientific & technical personnel, repository administrators,
editors and publishers on Institutional Repositories, application and usage
of Free and Open Source Software.

*End Note*

OA initiative is not a single event. It is a process and expects full
compliance over a period of three years.  Therefore, the proposed modest
policy is a first step in the journey towards formal declaration
of openness and then after reviews progress, compliance and impact
periodically.
