Research reveals economic case for open access publishing

January 28, 2009

A new research project commissioned by JISC is published today: Economic Implications of Alternative Scholarly Publishing Models: Exploring the costs and benefits.  One of the key findings is that sharing research information via a more open access publishing model would bring millions of pounds worth of savings to the higher education sector as well as benefiting UK plc.

Professor John Houghton from the Centre of Strategic Economic Studies at Melbourne’s Victoria University and Professor Charles Oppenheim at Loughborough University were asked to lead research that would throw light on the economic and social implications of new models for scholarly publishing.   The contributors from Loughborough included Charles Oppenheim, Anne Morris, Claire Creaser, Helen Greenwood, Mark Summers and Adrian Gourlay.
