Fund Gold OA Only AFTER Mandating Green OA, Not INSTEAD
Connotea Imports 2012-07-31
What universities, funders, researchers and research itself need, urgently, is Green OA mandates, not Gold OA Compacts.

But on no account commit to spending it pre-emptively on funding Gold OA instead of mandating Green OA -- not if OA is your goal, rather than something else.
