"In 2017, we worked with the former HEFCE, RCUK, Jisc and Wellcome to develop an open access assessment template in the form of an online survey. Our survey has now been used to produce a study, released by the recently-formed UKRI. Please find the Executive Summary of our report “Monitoring sector progress towards compliance with funder open access policies” below.
This project was jointly commissioned by HEFCE, RCUK, Jisc, and Wellcome to develop an open access assessment template for the UK higher education sector. The final template, in the form of an online survey, is due to be circulated to all UK higher education institutions (HEIs) later in 2017. It will be used to enhance understanding of how the sector is meeting funders’ open access policies and to inform future policy implementation, benchmarking and systems developments. This report summarises the work done by Research Consulting to develop and pilot a draft assessment template between May and July 2017. It also provides insights into 18 institutions’ progress towards the delivery of OA, gathered via qualitative interviews conducted as part of the pilot process...."
