JISC Celebrates 15 years of Open Access

Open Access for UK Research As part of International Open Access Week (October 19 – 23, 2009) JISC is today launching a definitive guide to its 15 years of work in Open Access, tracking the changes in UK policy, opinions and what the future will look like.

The guide has been created to showcase the work JISC has achieved for scholarly communications in the UK and is supported by electronic resources including interviews with experts from across education and research. This suite of information is being launched to support UK researchers in opening up their work for better returns on taxpayers’ investment.

Open Access Week is being led by SPARC the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, which is an international alliance of academic and research libraries working to correct imbalances in the scholarly publishing system.
