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.

The government's response to the Finch Report on open access to the results of publicly funded research and the announcement of how it will be implemented by the UK Research Councils (RCUK) have elicited a wide range of reactions: some have lauded the boldness of the new policy, while others have bemoaned it as a toothless submission to the interests of publishers.

Les modalités de la transition vers un modèle de libre accès ont été précisées mardi 17 juillet 2012 dans une réponse du gouvernement de coalition aux recommandations du rapport Finch sur la mise en place de l'Open Access.
