Conclusions
• Considerable potential for OAPEN-UK-style open
access model
• Need to increase confidence and understanding of
Creative Commons
• A push for CC BY may alienate researchers??
• Need to investigate researchers understanding of
publisher’s services
• Encourage authors to care more about post
publication elements
• Quality is paramount – need to ensure that OA
model tackles negative perceptions
