Princeton University has an Open Access Policy, which requires faculty to make their published journal article or conference proceedings open access; additionally be aware of the Research Funder Open Access Policies if your research is funded by certain funders. The Scholarly Communications Office states that the policy applies to refereed journal and conference articles and proceedings actually published; not books, book chapters, poetry, music, etc. The Princeton University Copyright website provides additional information.
