    The development of consortial approaches to Open Access in the UK

    In the five years since the Finch Report Jisc has been at the forefront of consortium negotiations with publishers in the UK to support a rapid transition to open access for UK research outputs. Drawing on institutional data on open access, this talk will reflect on the experience of negotiations in that period covering pure Gold, Hybrid and Green open access as Jisc, working with UK institutions, has steadily developed its approach in response to the available evidence. It will also explore the attitudes of institutions and look at the tensions around the current approach and their impact on negotiations.
