Virginia Tech Policies
Virginia Tech now has an open access policy which is now part of Policy 13000 (PDF). The policy was approved by the Board of Visitors on March 22, 2021. All Virginia Tech authors (faculty, staff, and students) may deposit manuscripts accepted after March 22, 2021. Questions about the policy can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and questions about the deposit process can be sent to email@example.com.
The Graduate School policy on electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) requires open access (with an embargo option). In 1997, Virginia Tech became the first university in the world to require ETDs.
See Virginia Tech's Policy on Intellectual Property (Policy 13000) and Ownership and Control of Research Results (Policy 13015).
