OAPEN-UK, a five year study into open access monograph publishing in the humanities and social sciences has today released its final report.
The OAPEN-UK project, funded by Jisc and the AHRC, provides a comprehensive and openly available dataset of research on open access monograph publishing in the UK. Led by Jisc Collections in collaboration with funders, researchers, publishers, learned societies, universities and libraries the project has undertaken extensive qualitative and quantitative research in order to provide an evidence base to help stakeholders make informed decisions about transitioning to open access monograph publishing.
The final report synthesis all the findings from the study and provides a set of recommendations to facilitate an effective transition to open access monograph publishing.
We look forward to working collaboratively with you to take forward the recommendations in support of humanities and social science research. If you would like to get involved, please do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
