Jisc Scholarly Communications Advisory Group

We’re aware that scholarly communications in general, and open access in particular, are now a high priority for universities and, as my last post showed, Jisc is busy helping them address that priority. In doing so, we work very closely with sector representatives, especially perhaps colleagues in university libraries and research offices. However, we’re aware that the scholarly communications ecosystem is broad and, in order to guide us in our work, we have convened an advisory group, chaired by John MacColl of the University of St Andrews. The group met for the first time in April, and I’m delighted to say that it agreed that, by default, papers and minutes from the group should be open, and I will use this blog to make them available. So, attached to this post (see below) you’ll find the papers and minutes relating to the April meeting; the agenda for the meeting is probably a good resource by which to navigate these papers. The Terms of Reference (ToR) document lists the current membership.

Jisc is extremely grateful to the members of the advisory group for giving up their time to offer guidance to us. The group next meets on 11th September.
