OpenAIRE has recently released its "Studies on Subject-Specific 
Requirements for Open Access Infrastructure". Designed as a comparative 
study covering five disciplines (Health, Climate, Agriculture, ICT, 
e-infrastructures) it provides in-depth insight into researchers' 
behaviour and current practices. With a focus on research workflows, 
literature and data management the case studies address key questions on 
how subject-specific needs can be represented in an Open Access 
infrastructure. Moreover, each case study provides a vision and 
principles for future information services to further exploit OA 
principles from a disciplinary perspective as well as advices to future 
directions for funding agencies.

The study is available both as an ebook and in individual chapters, 
consisting of an introduction, six subject-specific case studies from 
highly qualified subject specialists and a comparative conclusion.
