This is the proviso, if I am not mistaken, that was inaugurated at Harvard. It is the keystone of the whole system as it is an opt-in structure: you are in automatically, unless you specifically want to opt out. It is managed as it is at Harvard: you have to opt out article by article, not person by person. The result is that the alleged dilution Rick Anderson mentions is beautifully controlled and limited. From what I know of the Harvard situation, few people opt out, and when they do, they do so for special reasons on specific articles (for example because of the intransigent attitude of a particular publisher), not as a general expression of distaste for Open Access.

It looks like this is indeed just another non-mandatory "mandate." The language about each faculty member automatically granting Princeton a non-exclusive license to "exercise any and all copyrights in his or her scholarly articles published in any medium," etc., is then followed by this important qualifier: "Upon the express direction of a Faculty member, the Provost or the Provost's designate will waive or suspend application of this license for a particular article authored or co-authored by that Faculty member." So in other words, it's not an OA mandate, but rather an OA "mandate." You're bound by it unless you ask not to be, in which case you're not. --- Rick Anderson Assoc.
