Briefing on mandatory open access policies

SCONUL has produced a briefing to help support SCONUL members meet the challenges involved in delivering on the new open access requirements from research funders.

The briefing includes:

  • a short history of open access developments
  • a clear statement of funder requirements
  • learning from a series of case studies and a survey of members
  • further resources which SCONUL members may find helpful.

 A full copy of the briefing can be downloaded below.  A short summary of the key learning points from the case studies and survey has also been produced, below.
