RCUK announces forthcoming OA policy
The Research Councils UK (RCUK)
have publicly announced that they have agreed on an OA
policy but are not yet ready to make the policy itself public.
Here's the entirety of yesterday's announcement:
'RCUK has agreed [on] a position statement on access to and
dissemination of the outputs of research funded by the Research
Councils. This information was circulated to [the 121 UK]
Vice-Chancellors in March, to give them an opportunity to comment
before the document is finalised. RCUK expect to formally release
the statement in its definitive form in mid-May 2005.'
