The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is exploring how to more openly share its publications, data, software and educational materials with the public.

MIT’s Ad Hoc Task Force on Open Access, which began work 18 months ago, published a series of recommendations for the institution to strengthen its open-access policies on March 18. These include broadening the existing MIT Faculty Open Access Policy to cover student publications.

The task force also recommended that MIT ratify a set of open science principles, create an open-access fund for monographs and work with department heads to encourage open practices across all disciplines.

Members of the campus and the public can provide feedback on the recommendations until April 17.
