  5. 5.  LIBER Strategy - http://www.libereurope.eu/strategy  Is built on Research support  Does not attempt to replicate institutional Strategies  Adds value by providing a pan-European Strategy layer  3 Key Performance Areas  Scholarly Communication and Research Infrastructures  Reshaping the Research Library  Advocacy and Communications STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTIONAL REGIONAL/ NATIONAL LIBER
  6. 6.  OA Policy positions across Europe  UK Finch Report set the UK policy position - See http://www.researchinfonet.org/publish/finch/ - Recommended a clear policy direction in the UK towards support for ‘Gold’ open access publishing - Opposed by the research-intensive universities - £100 million will go to publishers over 5 years - No real attempt by Finch or RCUK to protect the UK research community from escalating publishing costs STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT: Case Study INSTITUTIONAL REGIONAL/ NATIONAL LIBER
  7. 7. STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT: European Case Study INSTITUTIONAL REGIONAL/ NATIONAL LIBER 49 mandatory policies in ROARMAP Type Number Green OA mandate 36 Green OA mandate with Gold option 12 Gold preference with Green option 1 Gold costs can be paid from research grant or claimed from funder = 19
  8. 8. STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT: European Case Study  For an individual institutional policy, Green is the only affordable practical option  JISC Report by John Houghton and Alma Swan – Going for Gold  See http://ie- repository.jisc.ac.uk/6 10
