Policy Guidelines for the Development and Promotion of Open Access

Ama Swan, UNESCO, Apr 09, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Excerpt: "Evidence has unequivocally demonstrated that to have real effect policies must be mandatory, whether institutional or funder policies.... Evidence shows that researchers are quite happy to be mandated to act in this way... Policies can require ‘green’ Open Access by self-archiving but to preserve authors’ freedom to publish where they choose policies should only encourage ‘gold’ Open Access through publication in Open Access journals." 74 page PDF from UNESCO.
