Joint "Re-Engineering" Plan of UK Government and UK Publisher Lobby for "Nudging" UK Researchers Toward Gold Open Access

Joint "Re-Engineering" Plan of UK Government and UK Publisher Lobby for "Nudging" UK Researchers Toward Gold Open Access
Joint "Re-Engineering" Plan of UK Government and UK Publisher Lobby for "Nudging" UK Researchers Toward Gold Open Access
The UK Government has made common cause with the UK journal publishing lobby in supporting publisher embargoes on Green Open Access and UK tax-payer subsidies to publishers for Gold Open Access fees over and above what the UK already pays publishers for subscriptions. The objective seems to be to preserve current publishers' revenue levels at all costs, on publishers' terms and timetables. The UK Government has accordingly elected to ignore most of the recommendations of its BIS Committee, but the recommendations will nevertheless be folllowed thanks to the HEFCE requirement to deposit articles in the author's institutional repository immediately upon acceptance for publication.

Abstract

The UK Government has made common cause with the UK journal publishing lobby in supporting publisher embargoes on Green Open Access and UK tax-payer subsidies to publishers for Gold Open Access fees over and above what the UK already pays publishers for subscriptions. The objective seems to be to preserve current publishers' revenue levels at all costs, on publishers' terms and timetables. The UK Government has accordingly elected to ignore most of the recommendations of its BIS Committee, but the recommendations will nevertheless be folllowed thanks to the HEFCE requirement to deposit articles in the author's institutional repository immediately upon acceptance for publication.
