Abstract

The debate over scholarly communications and the future of publishing continues to simmer. Open access (OA) is seen to be a Good Thing in principle, but how does it work, how much does it cost and who pays for it? A pilot study in supporting ‘gold’ and ‘green’ open access at the University of Birmingham is examining the costs to the institution and the requirements of the funders, researchers, research administrators and the Library. Information from the pilot will be used to recommend a practical way forward that meets the needs of different research disciplines and cultures, in the context of the University’s research strategy.
