The LERU Roadmap towards Open Access

by LERU Open Access Working Group


The idea of Open Access has been around for about a decade now, but the pathway to Open Access is not necessarily straight forward. There are benefits and costs. Many stakeholders will be involved. The LERU Roadmap traverses some of this landscape and aims to assist LERU members and other universities who wish to put in place structures, policies and practices to facilitate Open Access and to negotiate the various steps along the Green and Gold routes to Open Access. The LERU Roadmap towards Open Access thus represents a conscious decision by LERU to investigate new models for scholarly communication and the dissemination of research outputs emanating from LERU universities.
