Open Access Policy Waiver Form

UNT is committed to providing long-term stewardship and preservation of works of scholarship and to providing the broadest possible access to published scholarship produced by members of the UNT community in the course of their academic activities. Policy 06.041 requires that each UNT community member shall submit a copy of each of their works of scholarship published after February 1, 2012 to UNT Scholarly Works unless the published work of scholarship is made available to the public in another online repository; UNT community members grant the university the right to make these works available unless directed otherwise. However, some publishers require proof that an author has “requested a waiver” from their institution’s open access policy. To request a waiver from Policy 06.041, please complete the form below.
