Towards a DFID Research policy on open access

The UK's Department for International Development (DFID) is a major funder of agricultural and development research. A recent news item in R4D reposrts that DFID "supports Open Access as a core component of its research commitment to ensure that research knowledge can be accessed, built upon and used in support of the objectives of the DFID Research Strategy."

A recent scoping study [by Peter Ballantyne] has looked at how DFID Research can develop an open access policy that will lead to greater public access to the research outputs it finances. Read the report 'Towards a DFID Research Policy on Open Access' and see the presentation based upon this report.
