Finch Group reviews progress in implementing open access transition amid ongoing criticisms

Harnad, S (2013) Finch Group reviews progress in implementing open access transition amid ongoing criticisms London School of Economics LSE Impact Blog, Autumn Issue

Record type: Article

Abstract

The working group which first released the Finch Report on expanding access to published research in June 2012 has issued a new progress update. Following the UK government’s unilateral acceptance of these recommendations, criticisms have mounted against this so-called ‘push for Gold Open Access’. Stevan Harnad responds below to the new document from the Finch Group (hereafter referred to as Finch II), arguing that this review has largely failed to address the most pressing criticisms of the original report.
