Today, the UK House of Lords Science and Technology Committee released their report on the new RCUK open access policy. Commenting on the report, the chairman of the committee, Lord Krebs, said:
The Government must ensure that in further developing our capabilities to share research they do not inadvertently damage the ‘complex ecosystem’ of research communication in the UK.
