Universities UK has recently published a report from its Open Access Coordination Group, which aims to build on previous findings, and to examine trends over the period since the major funders of research in the UK established new policies to promote open access.
The research was delivered by a partnership involving Research Consulting, the University of Sheffield and Elsevier, and was led by Jubb Consulting.
Dingwall Enterprises supported part of the work by Research Consulting, looking at the impact of Open Access on UK learned societies. This compiled a considerable amount of additional data on the current condition of learned societies, particularly on their perceptions of challenges and risks – and on their responses. The material will form the basis of a separate publication to be submitted for publication during 2018.
