I have rarely been so proud of my alta mater as when I learned that they (or at least Arts and Sciences) adopted a rule requiring faculty members to make their research be freely and openly available. I have no idea why academic presses didn’t start crumbling five or ten years ago; open access to scholarly research is so obviously the right thing to do.
In another report on the matter, I see Stuart Shieber’s name attached to the motion; I took a compilers course from him, he was my adviser in a compiler-writing project I undertook, and I graded/TA’d for him a few times. Glad to see he’s fighting the good fight!
