How have we been doing?


sherpa.ac.uk/fact/


Studying the APC market


All the books?

  • No. The policy includes original scholarly research

  • written by, and aimed at, those who are actively

  • engaged with or interested in academic research,

  • rather than a general readership.


How will the extension work?

  • When? 1 October 2013 - October 2014.

  • Who? All current grant-holders.

  • How? Through PubMed Central and Europe PMC within six months of publication.


Uncharted territory: One size fits all?

  • Small print runs

  • +

  • High title price=

  • Lack of access to research published in

  • monograph or book chapter form


Uncharted territory: Price-gouging

  • We monitor monograph-processing charges

  • and the market

  • +

  • More publishers introduce an OA option =

  • In time a benchmark of prices will arise

  • and we will be aware of outliers.


Uncharted territory: Academic freedom?

  • Fully funded policy

  • +

  • Working with publishers =

  • Increase in publishers with OA options
