A project this summer, funded by a grant from the University of Chicago, will have produced an examination of a set of well-regarded academic sources with an eye towards their sustainable accessibility. The set of sources examined will include various paths that authors choose in the hope to share their works with others, including gold OA, green OA, hybrid options, uploading to academic social media sites, deposits to institutional repositories, etc. This assessment will then be shared as an open letter. This project will produce a set of procedures and plans such that anyone else interested in educating researchers/scholars about how to publish in a way that assures sustainable accessibiity can follow-suit.

We will be soliciting from the audience ideas for ways in which they and others can replicate this process thereby educating whole groups of academics on issues related to Open Access.
