Open Access to research publications - independent advice and evidence

February is a month of discovery. Not just of gravitational waves but for increased evidence for Open Access, for the costs of publishing monographs and for academic journal markets.

This blog focuses on the highlights of Professor Adam Tickell’s OA report to Jo Johnson (Minister of State for Universities and Science) that has been published today, with the Minister’s response. It also mentions the Costs of Publishing Monographs report from Ithaka and the Academic journal markets report from SCONUL, RLUK, ARMA and Jisc.
