Copyright & Teaching

“Copyrighted work is an essential part of day-to-day life on campus. Research, scholarship, instructional materials, software, and—in some cases—datasets are all examples of copyrighted work the campus community regularly creates, uses, and builds upon.”

Open Access Publishing at UC Davis

“The UC Davis Library promotes broad public access to the scholarly work of the Davis campus community, and encourages Davis authors to participate in the wider dissemination, higher visibility, and accelerated discovery of knowledge that open access publishing offers.

For any questions related to publishing agreements, open access discounts and to open access publishing in general, please contact the UC Davis Library’s Scholarly Communications Officer Michael Ladisch,
