Following on from the last blog post made just under a month ago when I reported on the evidence given to the House of Lords inquiry into the Government’s implementation of their open access policy. UKCoRR submitted a further evidence document on open access to the House of Commons, Business Innovation and Skills Committee inquiry.
The House of Commons enquiry focussed particularly on the RCUK’s preference of ‘gold’ open access over ‘green’, article processing charges (APCs), Creative Commons licenses and the ability of the UK to remain competitive in the international research arena under these conditions. This blog post will be updated with the details of the other evidence given to the inquiry once this information is released.
The previous inquiry from the House of Lords, having heard and read all of the evidence presented to them have announced that they will be publishing the report of their findings and recommendations on the 22nd February.
