Waiver Request Form
Please use this form to request a waiver of the GW Open Access Policy for a particular article.
However, please be aware that waiver of the GW Open Access Policy does not affect public access requirements from sponsors such as government agencies. If the article is subject to the 2008 NIH Public Access Policy, any policy developed as a result of the 2013 White House Office of Science and Technology Policy memorandum, or other sponsor requirements, those obligations cannot be waived. You must be sure to reserve rights sufficient to comply with any sponsor policies when you enter into a publication agreement for the article.
