Report on Deposit Workflows and Open Access Support Services

In year two of the opeNWorks project we’ve looked at the approaches institutions have in place to support the HEFCE Open Access (OA) policy and OA support services.  The report presents our findings on both topics, providing a snapshot of the deposit workflows in place at 39 UK institutions and OA support services at 3 institutions in early 2016. The report suggests that workflows will continue to evolve, requiring increased staffing, greater engagement from authors or automated solutions, and that OA support services continue to be vulnerable at a number of institutions, relying on temporary, fixed-term staffing.
