New home for opeNWorks OA Toolkit

The Open Access Toolkit developed as part of the opeNWorks project has a new more permanent home at Our new Hub provides links to:

  1. Guide for Open Access for Support Staff – this is a guide aimed at staff who are new to open access support or for whom OA is just a part of their role.
  2. OA Advocacy Presentation – this is an introductory presentation covering the main points you might want to get across when talking to your academics about Open Access. There are some generic slides and blank slides for you to add information unique to your institution. Also included are presentation notes and details of how to tailor the presentation for your needs.
  3. Ask an OA Colleague – this is a series of Frequently Asked Questions developed based on the experiences of the project team and other colleagues within the North West region.

You can help by contributing to the “Ask a colleague” section, share either a question or an answer with us by leaving a comment on the page. Discussions will then be summarised and added to the FAQ.

As the project continues we’ll aim to update the toolkit to reflect OA developments so watch this space.
