Institutional support for open access is growing steadily. Through an executive directive, the White House has required all federal agencies that provide significant support for research to file plans in August 2013 for how they will make journal articles and research data arising from federal support agreements publicly available over the Internet. Meanwhile, the University of California system also recently adopted a robust system-wide open access policy. This talk will put these recent developments in historical perspective, explain and examine their principal requirements, and focus on the growing importance of reuse rights for open access materials.
