Each faculty member grants the university a non-exclusive license to make each of their scholarly articles open for dissemination.
Faculty will send the final, peer-reviewed manuscript (not the published version) of their journal articles to K-State Libraries for deposit in K-REx.
Faculty members will be able to submit a waiver form and opt out of the policy on an article-by-article basis with no justification needed.
