Mrs Chris Banks


Chris will expand on her Insights article where she discusses the broad and complex funder open access (OA) policy environment in the UK and describes some of the challenges and opportunities libraries face in providing frictionless services to support academics in Open Access publishing. She offers a view on the actions of publishers in this policy environment, as well as outlining how strategic discussions have moved beyond the library to include the whole institution. She will then go on to work being led by Imperial College London to bring the Harvard OA Policy to the UK and will offer some insights as to how such an approach might be taken forward across Europe.
