Dr Stephen Pinfield and Professor Peter Bath from the Information School will be Co-Investigators on a research project which will examine the transition to open access in the UK.
The project is being led by the Research Information Network and is worth a total of £64,000. It will run from January to May 2015.
Sponsored by Universities UK, the research will be overseen by a steering group consisting of representatives from UUK, HEFCE and RCUK as well as the publisher and library communities. The outcomes of the project will inform UK policy in this area.
