Sharing Information

I took part in two Pathfinder Summer series meetings in the last week.

This involved showing the open access fields and reporting functionality we have set up in EPrints.

The main reports are an extract for reporting to RCUK/COAF that has been successfully tested and imports to Monitor UK.  Monitor UK plan to aggregate open access cost information  from UK research organisations with a view to analysing this and potential assisting discussions with publishers and informing decisions.

We also showed our University of Glasgow REF Open Access reports.

These are imperfect and constantly reviewed in these early months of new REF policy.
