University College of Borås adopts OA policy

Sweden's University College of Borås has adopted an OA policy encouraging faculty to deposit their journal articles in the institutional repository BADA (Borås Academic Digital Archive). Also, students who have received financial support from the college to carry out their dissertation work are expected to publish it in a series that belongs to the college and also deposit it in BADA. One such thesis is Helena Francke’s (Re)creations of scholarly journals: Document and information architecture in open access journals, which we informed about here.

Moreover employees at the college are encouraged “to publish their scientific articles in an Open Access journal where there is an appropriate one.”
