Press Release London
London, 26 November 2013 – Commenting on the Government’s response to the Business Select Committee report, Richard Mollet, CEO, The Publishers Association, said:
“The Government’s response to the Business Select Committee report is a very welcome and clear reaffirmation of the course of action agreed by all stakeholders involved in the Finch Review. It asserts that Gold open access is the preferred route; the agreed embargo periods and the UK Open Access “decision
tree” are appropriate, and a call for an immediate deposit mandate is
rejected. We also believe Government is right to maintain its view that
hybrid journals have a vital role to play in the transition to open access.
