2014 Independent Review of Implementation

RCUK committed to a number of independent reviews of the implementation of the RCUK Policy on Open Access during the transition period of five years.

The first review, chaired by Professor Sir Bob Burgess, took place in 2014 and covered the first 16 months of the policy’s implementation: 1st April 2013 to 31st July 2014. The review examined the implementation of the policy and its impact for higher education institutions, independent research organisations, learned societies and publishers, to ensure the policy is effective and provides clear guidance to the research community.

All documentation relating to the 2014 review is now available.
