Commenting on the publication today of the Review of the Implementation of the RCUK Open Access Policy, Richard Mollet, Chief Executive of The Publishers Association and member of the Review Panel, said:
“The report into the implementation of RCUK's Open Access policy stresses the need for greater clarity in communication to institutions and researchers, and the need for a standard way of measuring the levels of compliance at each institution.
“It is difficult to make hard and fast recommendations about the future direction policy might take unless there is a clearer view of how it is currently working.
“Publishers will continue to engage with RCUK and other funders like HEFCE to assist in the development of Open Access in scholarly research, an area in which the UK is leading the world.”
