Reinoltro dalla lista GOAL.
La novitÓ pi¨ importante Ŕ che il BIS report cerca di correggere la 
politica UK sull'OA, virata nettamente a favore del gold OA a causa del 
tanto discusso Finch report: raccomanda, infatti, di perseguire la 
strada del green OA.
Buona lettura

Business, Innovation and Skills Committee Select Committee
Announcement No.21
Monday 9 September 2013

NEW REPORT: /*Open Access: achieving a functional market*/
/Under strict embargo until 00.01 BST on Tuesday 10 September/

*Government mistaken in focusing on Gold as route to full open access, 
says Committee 

The Government?s commitment to increasing access to published research 
findings, and its desire to achieve full open access, are welcome, says 
the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee in a Report published 
today. However, whilst Gold open access is a desirable ultimate goal, 
focusing on it during the transition to a fully open access world is a 
mistake, says the Report.

The Report calls on the Government and RCUK to reconsider their 
preference for Gold open access during the five year transition period, 
and give due regard to the evidence of the vital role that Green open 
access and repositories have to play as the UK moves towards full open 

The Report recommends that:

    ? the Government should take an active role in promoting
    standardisation and compliance across subject and institutional
    repositories [paragraph 25].

    ? RCUK should reinstate and strengthen the immediate deposit mandate
    in its original policy and improve the monitoring and enforcement of
    mandated deposit [paragraph 31].

    ? the Government and RCUK should revise their policies to place an
    upper limit of 6 month embargoes on STEM subject research and up to
    12 month embargoes for HASS subject research [paragraph 50].

    ? the Government should mitigate against the impact on universities
    of paying Article Processing Charges out of their own reserves
    [paragraph 64].

    ? if the preference for Gold is maintained, the Government and RCUK
    should amend their policies so that APCs are only paid to publishers
    of pure Gold rather than hybrid journals to eliminate the risk of
    double-dipping [paragraph 77].
