On Wednesday 15 October, Dr Stephen Pinfield of the Information School will be presenting evidence to the Burgess Committee on open access policy.
The Burgess Committee was established as one of several independent reviews into the important subject of revised open access policy, which was introduced by Research Councils UK. The Burgess Committee is the first of the independent reviews and it focuses upon the implementation of the policy between 1 April 2013 and 31 July 2014.
Dr Pinfield’s evidence is based upon a study which explores open access publishing and the total cost of publishing journal articles. This study was completed with Professor Peter Bath and PhD student Jennifer Salter who are both from the Information School.
