Several members of the CRC staff attended the Jisc Digital Festival this week. Bill Hubbard spoke as part of the panel on Open Access: Jisc’s services to help you meet the funders’ requirements. This session gave an overview of a key set of Jisc national services and initiatives that support institutions across the lifecycle of open access, from the submission of a paper to a journal, to its download and use, enabling universities both to support their authors and readers, and comply with relevant policies from research councils and others. Bill spoke about the benefits of the SHERPA Services, including the efficiency gains at sector level and he also discussed findings from the recent Jisc SHERPA Services Survey.
The #Digifest15 programme included a number of sessions on aspects of open access and research data; the Jisc Slideshare channel has been populated with presentations, slides and other resources from sessions have already been uploaded to the website, and recordings will be published shortly.
