The challenges of Open Access. What are the obstacles, annoyances and hazards for institutions in making their research output openly accessible? How has the landscape changed over the years, from a “nice to have” option put forward by more activist members of the research community, to an imperative supported by major funder. What steps need to be taken to ensure that, going forward, individual researchers are able to meet accessibility criteria and don’t fall foul of these new guidelines?
