[InetBib] Grossbritannien spart £28m durch Open Access

Liebe Kollegen,

die UK Open Access Implementation Group, an der wir beteiligt sind, hat zwei 
Studien zu Open Access veroeffentlicht, die Sie vielleicht interessieren. 
Einige Highlights:

"The UK public sector already saves £28.6 million by using open access. The 
reports make it clear that both the public sector and the voluntary sector 
would see further direct and indirect benefits from increased access to UK 
higher education research publications."

"The UK public sector spends £135 million a year, made up of subscriptions and 
time spent trying to find articles, accessing the journal papers it needs to 
perform effectively. Each extra 5% of journal papers accessed via open access 
on the web would save the public purse £1.7 million, even if no subscription 
fees were to be saved."


In diesem Kontext ist auch noch der folgende Guardian-Artikel relevant:

"The government has drafted in the Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales to help make 
all taxpayer-funded academic research in Britain available online to anyone who 
wants to read or use it."
