EUA report & recommendations Open Access 2020

VU International News and Reviews No. 95 July 12 2017

July 2017

The European Universities Association EUA has published the results of its 2015-16 survey on Open Access as well as a document with recommendations for universities and national universities’ associations. The survey report is based on 169 responses, whereas the 2014-15 survey yielded 106 responses. EUA suggests that both the ‘gold’ and ‘green’ routes for Open Access have their advantages, that cost transparency in the scientific publishing market is a non-negotiable requirement, and that governments and funding agencies have a key role to play.
