Government in the Sunshine
In Florida, every person has been granted the Constitutional right to inspect or copy any public record
with some exemptions, and the Sunshine Law provides a right of access to government proceedings at
both the state and local levels. These essential laws afford citizens of our state the ability to see behind
the curtain of government and remain involved in the processes that affect their lives. Without this
access there is little accountability, and accountability is vital for good government.

The Attorney General's Office plays a key role in keeping Florida's government open to all Floridians.
The office is charged with mediating disputes involving access to public records and provides a
mediation program to that effect a resource which can be requested by any member of the public and
was put into action more than 75 times in 2007. The mediation program involves an impartial individual
who encourages and facilitates the resolution of a dispute involving access to public records. The
mediators assist the participants in fostering joint problem-solving and exploring settlement alternatives.
By allowing parties to resolve issues in an informal mediation process, we prevent expensive and
time-consuming litigation which is often not an option for a citizen who is merely trying to hold his or her
government accountable and responsible for its actions.
o Members of local government entities or law enforcement agencies seeking to resolve public
records issues may contact the Attorney General's Office at 850-245-0197.

What is a public record?
A. The Florida Supreme Court has determined
that public records are all materials made or
received by an agency in connection with official
business which are used to perpetuate,
communicate or formalize knowledge. They are
not limited to traditional written documents.
Tapes, photographs, films and sound
recordings are also considered public records
subject to inspection unless a statutory
exemption exists. There are exceptions!

In Dr. Machen's Achievement to Recognition plan
http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/ufdc/?b=UF00076703, his emphasis
on "sharing knowledge to serve the people of
Florida and the world" implies using effective
distribution networks, essentially the internet.
Whether or not the university administration will
mandate submittal of faculty papers to a central
institutional repository remains unclear, but the
growing impetus by funding agencies may make it
a moot point.

What is Open Access?
Open Access (OA) is free, immediate, permanent online access to the full text of
research articles for anyone, webwide.
There are two roads to OA:
(1) the "golden road" of OA iournal-publishing where journals provide OA
to their articles (either by charging the author-institution for
refereeing/publishing outgoing articles instead of charging the
user-institution for accessing incoming articles, or by simply making their
online edition free for all);
(2) the "green road" of OA self-archiving, where authors provide OA to their
