"UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) welcomes the publication of two independent reports on open research, commissioned by government and published today. Both reports contain a series of recommendations for UKRI and other stakeholders.
The independent advice on Open Access in the UK, submitted by University of Sussex Vice-Chancellor Professor Adam Tickell, sets out a vision of sustainable open access to UK research, and value for money on public investment in research.
To achieve this Professor Tickell recommends that UKRI work together with other leaders in the sector to articulate a clear, UK-wide policy ambition for Open Access, underpinned by a coherent and harmonised UKRI policy on open access. He also recommends that UKRI fund open access in a way that delivers maximum value for the public pound, and to work together with other funders to closely monitor the transition to open access.
A report on Open Research Data was submitted by the Open Research Data Task Force (ORDTF), chaired by Professor Pam Thomas, Pro Vice Chancellor for Research at the University of Warwick...."
