No. The university open access policy (effective date: January 1, 2020) applies to scholarly articles only. A related guideline encourages members of the university to make other works open.
To support open access to scholarly monographs published by Penn State faculty, Penn State is participating in the Toward an Open Monograph Ecosystem (TOME) initiative. Penn State’s Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost has committed to funding $45,000 to be split among up to three subvention grants to support publishing open access monographs each year for five years (2018-2023). Each grant will be contributed directly to a press participating in the program for an open access publication of an eligible Penn State faculty authored work. These funds are administered by the Libraries. For more information, please visit the Libraries' TOME page.
To encourage faculty at Penn State to create and adapt open educational resources, Penn State has created Affordable Course Transformation (ACT). This program provides provide course transformation grants funded by the Provost. For more information, please visit the program's webpage.
