Scholarly Communication and Management Program

The Scholarly Communication and Management Program (SCAMP) is a campuswide program that facilitates collaboration and a community dialogue on a wide range of scholarly communication issues that impact teaching and research (the changing nature of scholarship in a digital environment; economics of scholarly publishing; preservation of digital assets; intellectual property rights, etc.). SCAMP sponsors programs, forums, and initiatives that reflect the varying needs of our diverse academic community and serves as a clearinghouse for appropriate information and resources.

More Information
The UC Academic Senate passed a UC Open Access Policy on July 24, 2013 that ensures that future research articles authored by UC faculty will be made openly available to the public at no charge.  The UCI Libraries are taking an active role in ushering in this new era by implementing new library services in support of the policy, educating faculty, and helping them share their research. 

Watch a 90-second introduction to the policy.
