Evolving strategies for Open Access implementation: some findings from the OpenAIRE FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot

A year and a half into its implementation, this EC post-grant funding initiative for FP7 projects being run under the OpenAIRE2020 project is already producing some findings, both in the area of APC-based Gold Open Access and in providing support to APC-free Open Access journals and platforms. While exploring the rather fragmented Open Access landscape across Europe, this presentation will look into the evolution of the multiple parallel strategies for Open Access implementation under the light of the work carried out within this post-grant funding initiative. It will be argued that a widespread progress will require support for the different strategies that currently co-exist.
