More FUD From the Publishers Association About the HEFCE/REF Deposit Mandate - Open Access Archivangelism

Amsciforum 2014-10-13

Summary:

In response to the HEFCE Open Access Policy for REF2020, the Publishers Association has made the following counter-proposal, which is as predictable as the succession of night upon day: 1. Don't require deposit upon the date of acceptance, because publisher embargoes are timed to begin on the date of publication, not the date of acceptance. 2. Don't require deposit of the author's final draft; wait for the publisher's version of record. 3. Don't require deposit at all: let us take care of it, after our embargo has elapsed: then you don't have to worry about figuring out the date of publication. 4. Please send us a justification for wanting to do otherwise... SEE REPLY (cont'd)
