Research Consulting Ltd wins bid for providing a Market Analysis Report on the Open Access publishing market

Four bids were received as of the Oct 7th deadline in response to the call for proposals for an Open Access Publishing Market Analysis Report released by OpenAIRE and the EC FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot on Sep 16th. After a careful bid assessment process and a steep competition among the received proposals, the proposal submitted by Research Consulting Ltd has been selected to provide this report.

This winning bid not only was put together by a well-established team of consultants with a thorough background in the relevant areas, but addressed all the relevant worklines OpenAIRE expected to get covered. Some of these are:

  • A survey among authors funded by the EC FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot to explore their attitudes towards the funding initiative and how it has worked out for them;

  • Case studies that address the different Open Access policy landscapes and their gradual implementation across a range of European regions, leading to an analysis of possible roadmaps for further Open Access implementation in these specific landscapes;

  • Supporting role at the workshop on sustainable Open Access publishing to be organised by LIBER in April 2017.
