(2006-2016) Analysis of Open Access at Brunel University London through data services: Lantern, CORE, DOAJ, Sherpa REF, Sherpa RoMEO, Symplectic

Published on (GMT) by David Walters
Over the last decade we at Brunel University London have passed a number milestones on a journey towards open scholarship. In this context, and one year on from the implementation of HEFCE’s open access requirements, we present an overview of Brunel University London’s research outputs portfolio through emergent open access data services, revealing a scale of engagement, collaboration and duplication of effort not previously visible to our request driven service. Some results were published in blogpost with Hindawi: we review the effect of ten years of open access policies and mandates and consider whether a retrospective measure of ‘openness’ could now provide a better tool to promote the open dissemination of scholarly works as an embedded academic practice. This data will form part of a journal submission later in the year. David Walters and Christopher Daley will be sharing some of these results at the 2017 UKSG annual conference.
