The UNT Open Access Policy has two goals. For long-term stewardship of all scholarly work created by UNT Community Members, they are encouraged to deposit their works in the UNT Scholarly Works institutional repository. A subset of those scholarly works, namely, the peer-reviewed, accepted-for-publication (post-peer review, pre-typeset) journal articles, is covered by the policy with the requirement of immediate deposit and the setting of the access level to Open Access upon deposit. However, the access level and the granting of the license to UNT by the author will be aligned with the publishers' policies. Further, the author can request, for an individual article, a waiver from granting the license, and the author can request a more restricted access level than what is allowed by a publishers' policy.
