Project deliverable Open Access
Anderson, David; Wilson, Andrew
This is a report on the responses received as the result of a survey carried out between 27th February and 24th March 2017 as part of the ROMOR project.
The general objective of the survey was to identify the research data management and open access practices of European HEIs in order to identify best practice in RDM and OA in Europe with a view to establishing a base line for development of such capacity in Palestinian HEIs.
The survey was based on one carried out by the Digital Curation Centre in 20151, which was focussed on research data management practices. The ROMOR EU survey included additional questions concerning Open Access as well as amending the DCC questions to better reflect the pan-European nature of the audience. The survey was available for completion online, from 27 February to 31 March 2017. In total 11 responses were received from the UK, Europe, Australia, and the USA.
The survey covered 22 areas across a broad range of issues concerned with the institutional management of Research Data, and Open Access material. The principal areas explored were Open Access Practice, Institutional Progress, OA & RDM Policy Development and Implementation, the Scope and Resourcing of Institutional Repositories, and expectations about likely Future Needs.
