U.K. Devotes £10 Million to Open Access Shift - ScienceInsider

U.K. Devotes £10 Million to Open Access Shift - ScienceInsider | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Following up on recommendations to make more research freely available to scientists and the public, the U.K. government today pledged £10 million toward making scientific papers open access. The funding will help 30 research-intensive universities develop open access policies and pay the author fees charged by publishers to make a paper more freely available to the public. Paul Nurse, president of the Royal Society, welcomed the investment in a statement: 

It is good news that the Government has managed to find an additional £10 million to help aid the transition to open access publishing of publicly funded science. The move towards making research results as widely available as possible is the right thing to do but it will take time. It will be important that during the transition years funds are not drained from actual research and this £10million is a step in the right direction.
