The wee country that rOAred : measuring, supporting and building trust in open access in Scotland through institutional repositories
MetadataShow full item record
The 2021 CWTS Leiden rankings show 24 UK institutions in the global Top 10 by percentage of Open Access publications and 25% of those institutions are in Scotland. This presentation will focus on the experience of some of these Scottish institutions and the growth of their institutional repository services as a demonstration of a wider national commitment to Open Access. It will also highlight the growth in Open Access demonstrated by the CWTS rankings and Scotland?s Open Access journey from 2004 to today. This will be done through brief case studies which showcase the experience and expertise of these institutions and the support of the Scottish Confederation of University and Research Libraries (SCURL). It will also highlight the opportunities for national collaboration at a Scottish and UK level set against the context of updated UK open access funder policy and a national assessment exercise (REF2021) which was committed to Open Access.
