ALPSP announces launch of Open Access Resource Center

ALPSP has launched a new online resource center on open access, hosted by, and in partnership with Copyright Clearance Center.

“ALPSP members are committed to making content open access in the way their research communities need it, but keeping track of current thinking and policy developments on open access from across the globe can seem nigh-on impossible at times. This resource will help the industry access the information they need to make those decisions,” said Audrey McCulloch, Chief Executive of ALPSP.

“Around the world, open access is changing scholarly and scientific publishing, not only for publishers of all sizes, but also for authors, librarians, content users, funders and others,” said Roy Kaufman, Managing Director of New Ventures, CCC. “Working in partnership with ALPSP we hope to develop The Open Access Resource Center to become a one-stop-shop for all things open access. With this in mind, we urge visitors to the site to complete the feedback form and tell us what else is required.”

“We are delighted to work with CCC on this project who have provided their considerable expertise to get the site up and running,” continues Audrey McCulloch. “We are looking forward to working with them in 2014 to develop this resource further.”

The resource center includes links to the latest open access news, reports, whitepapers, webinars and websites.
