[InetBib] OpenAIRE - Release of "Studies on Subject-Specific Requirements for Open Access Infrastructure"

** Apologies for cross-posting **

OpenAIRE has recently released its "Studies on Subject-Specific 
Requirements for Open Access Infrastructure".
Designed as a comparative study covering five disciplines (Health, 
Climate, Agriculture, ICT, e-infrastructures) it provides in-depth 
insight into researchers' behaviour and current practices. With a focus 
on research workflows, literature and data management the case studies 
address key questions on how subject-specific needs can be represented 
in an Open Access infrastructure. Moreover, each case study provides a 
vision and principles for future information services to further exploit 
OA principles from a disciplinary perspective as well as advices to 
future directions for funding agencies.

The study is available both as an ebook and in individual chapters, 
consisting of an introduction, six subject-specific case studies from 
highly qualified subject specialists and a comparative conclusion.
