Open Access Working Group
The Open Access Working Group completed its work at the end of 2012. As of 1 January 2013, the University has established an Open Access Project Board and a new website at http://www.openaccess.cam.ac.uk/.
Following discussion at the General Board, the Research Policy Committee received a paper in March 2012 that outlined the need to consider the development of University policy in relation to Open Access. The Research Policy Committee agreed that a Working Group should be set up under the chairmanship of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research, supported by the Research Strategy Office.
