Just a reminder that today is the final day that one can submit written
evidence to the BIS 'open access inquiry'
Further details here:
Anyone, from anywhere in the world can submit written evidence as long as
it addresses the points of the inquiry
The Committee will consider a range of topics including:
- The Government’s acceptance of the recommendations of the Finch Group
Report ‘Accessibility, sustainability, excellence: how to expand access to
research publications’, including its preference for the ‘gold’ over the
‘green’ open access model;
- Rights of use and re-use in relation to open access research
publications, including the implications of Creative Commons ‘CC-BY’
- The costs of article processing charges (APCs) and the implications
for research funding and for the taxpayer; and
- The level of ‘gold’ open access uptake in the rest of the world versus
the UK, and the ability of UK higher education institutions to remain
Written evidence should be sent to the Committee, as an MS Word document,
by e-mail to biscommem at parliament.uk.
I am hoping Richard Smith will be submitting some expert evidence
