Here’s a report released on Wednesday by the Research Information Network (RIN) in the UK. It will likely be of interest to a global audience.
From a RIN Blog Post:
We undertook a study in August and September on the processes involved in the payment of APCs for open access publications, and the scope for improving efficiency and effectiveness by the use of intermediaries. The study involved workshops and interviews with a range of universities, publishers, funders, and possible intermediaries including subscription agents, reproduction rights organisations, a start-up company, and JISC Collections.
