Harvard U. Students Support Open Access for Student Theses

A Harvard University student group, Harvard College Free Culture, has created a freely accessible Web site for seniors’ theses, according to a staff editorial last week in the campus newspaper, The Harvard Crimson. Students voluntarily post their theses to the Web site. The editorial announced its support for the project, saying it “should help students find models for senior theses as they enter the daunting process” of writing their own theses.

The paper also stated that the project fits well with the open access plan recently adopted by the university’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. —-Andrea L. Foster
