Connotea Imports 2012-07-31
"PEER is building an Observatory to gather evidence about the impact of large scale systematic archiving of stage-two (accepted) manuscripts (so called Green Open Access). The final strand of research on the economics of deposit and access is now being tendered: What can be said about the costs of depositing of stage-two outputs? How do different methods of deposit to repositories compare for cost? How do different methods of access to repositories and journals compare for cost? What can be said about the cost to scholars as well as to repositories and/or libraries? What is the (likely) economic impact on publishers?"
