EUA publishes Roadmap on Open Access to Research Publications
The European University Association (EUA) has recently published an "EUA Roadmap on Open Access to Research Publications". The Roadmap is designed to assist European universities in the transition to Open Access (OA) and follows on from a recommendation made by EUA’s Expert Group on Science 2.0/Open Science.
The current roadmap focuses primarily on OA to research publications, to address the most pressing implications of Open Science, including, inter alia, OA to research data, copyright, data protection and text and data mining; new models of evaluation and quality assessment; digital literacy and awareness. The EUA sees its Roadmap as a contribution to furthering the dialogue with partners and stakeholders on this issue, and addressing the opportunities, challenges and next steps concerning Open Access and, more broadly, Open Science.TOP
