July update on Jisc activity supporting OA for research papers

As we head toward the summer, I thought it would be useful to provide a further update on the range of projects and services that help universities implement OA for research papers. The update is in this Word document.

This update is also being circulated to those attending a workshop on OA in the REF around the Repository Fringe next week, which Jisc staff will be attending to provide further information.

There are also several resources also now available from the OA pathfinder projects, including a cost modelling tool for APC funds, and a package of resources on researcher behaviour.

We’ll be providing a further update in late September / early October via a free webinar.

We’re also working on OA monographs, and i hope will be able to post an update on that work here shortly. For the latest on Jisc’s work on research data, you might want to check Jisc’s research data management blog.
