Q. What kinds of writings does BU's open access policy apply to?Sep 05, 2019
This policy applies to scholarly articles. We are basing the definition of scholarly articles on that provided by the Budapest Open Access Initiative, which defines them as writings created “without payment, for the sake of inquiry and knowledge.” Scholarly articles may or may not be peer-reviewed; in most cases they are.
The policy does not apply to books, book chapters, creative works, encyclopedia entries, ephemeral writings, teaching and learning materials, or popular or commissioned articles.
