Will the Western OA Policy conflict with journal policies?

No. The Western OA Policy will respect journal, publisher, and granting body policies, including any embargoes in place before works are able to be shared openly. While Western scholars agree to publish in open access publications and/or deposit our scholarly work in Scholarship@Western or a trusted disciplinary repository under the OA policy, authors may opt out of the policy when other policies prohibit them from sharing a scholarly work openly.
