  3. 3. HHuLOA partners Chris Awre, Hull ( Graham Stone, Huddersfield ( Paul Stainthorp, Lincoln (
  4. 4. HHuLOA will... “...examine the role of open access in furthering the development of research at the partner institutions. The project will focus on good practice in identifying and implementing a range of open access initiatives across the partners with the specific remit of furthering the research interests of the partner institutions...”
  5. 5. Objectives 1. To establish a baseline starting point 2. To communicate the policy landscape internally and understand research local strategy/policy 3. In that context, to review and define options for open access service development 4. To enhance local systems to serve OA needs and embed external services 5. To monitor the relationship between OA and research development within the institutions 6. To report and reflect work to the community
  6. 6. The plan... ● Mutually get to know our different research environments better ● Mutually get to know our open access environments better ● Identify links between these to establish a baseline from which we can develop ● Communicate open access policy landscape to research communities using agreed advocacy messages and materials ○ Link to research strategy and development to establish relationship ● Use our knowledge of the open access landscape to identify best fit open access services that can be implemented to best serve research development ○ Jisc Monitor, IRUS-UK and British Library (re: rights) already lined up
  7. 7. The plan 2 ● Identify repository technical enhancements that will be required to implement services ○ Working with EPrints and Fedora/Hydra communities (and other projects where useful to focus need and priorities for development) ● Ask questions about links between OA and research developments throughout project and identify answers with researchers ● Reflect findings on an ongoing basis through blog, OAWAL wiki, and event
