Under the current version, the policy applies only to researchers employed by KAUST. It does not apply to all researchers using KAUST funds. However, articles resulting from KAUST funding could be added to the policy in the future if that is KAUST’s wish. Such an open access requirement would be similar to the stance taken by leading research funders such as the US National Institute of Health, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the Wellcome Trust.
