As part of the deliverables for the JISC Pathfinder project, the O2OA team have released a provisional needs assessment report. This document outlines the responses and analysis from focus groups and interviews with academic and non-academic staff and offers recommendations for strategic and pragmatic approaches to enhance OA practices. As we are still gathering data across the institutions the report is provisional until we have all data and completed a final analysis.
With openness in mind, we would also like to release the current version of the report to the wider OA community. We also welcome comments, feedback or suggestions which may help generate further value and guide the creation of the final report (December 2014). The document is available here and will be open until early December 2014.
