In this webinar, David Walters and Christopher Daley from Brunel University London explore the complexities of the current UK open access (OA) policy landscape and examine the concurrent emergence of open science services which aim to provide global OA data. Using the results of their recent study, they will consider whether the global data on open access activity offered by services such as Sherpa REF, CORE and Unpaywall can enhance publication data held within institutional systems. These results will assist discussion of how local, institutional systems may be able to provide a more complete picture of collaborative OA activity through greater interoperability with global data services.
