Prof. Bullock wins Leadership in Open Access Award
The award was given in recognition of his exceptional commitment to broadening the reach of scholarship by making publicly-funded research freely accessible online in collaboration with Purdue Libraries.

Interim President Timothy Sands presented Professor Darcy Bullock with the 2012 faculty award for Leadership in Open Access on October 26, 2012.  This award is given in recognition of his exceptional commitment to broadening the reach of scholarship by making publicly-funded research freely accessible online in collaboration with Purdue Libraries.  Professor Bullock is director of the Joint Transportation Research Program (JTRP), which has collaborated with the Libraries to make over 1,500 reports freely accessible on Purdue e-Pubs.  Recently, one of the JTRP reports written by Professor Emeritus Sidney Diamond was recognized as the 3-millionth download.   See Purdue Today for more information.
