The Government is making it easier for academics, businesses and the public to get easier access to publicly funded research. This follows recommendation made in the Finch Report on open access.
This will likely see a major increase in the number of taxpayer-funded research papers freely available to the public.
Science Minister David Willetts said:
“Removing paywalls that surround taxpayer funded research will have real economic and social benefits. It will allow academics and businesses to develop and commercialise their research more easily and herald a new era of academic discovery.”
