As of 2014 the Vice-Chancellor's decision is that all reports and factsheets produced by SLU shall be deposited in Epsilon, the SLU open access archive. The decision also includes a general encouragement for SLU scholars to publish open access. Since an earlier decision, all theses and student theses are also published in the open archive. Publishing in Epsilon makes the publications easily findable by search engines like Google and also makes it easy to share them on social networks. Furthermore, the publications are given a persistent link, by which they will always be accessible no matter where the Epsilon archive is located in the future.
