DART-Europe’s 2013 Board Meeting
The DART-Europe portal makes available Open Access research theses from the libraries of LIBER members. As of today, there are 416,113 open access research theses from 541 Universities in 27 European countries available through the portal.
The 2013 DART Board listened to talks from Dr Alma Swan (SPARC-Europe) on European developments in Open Access to research publications and research data; and to Dr Marta Lee-Perriard (ProQuest) on how ProQuest is developing an Open Access Business Model for OA theses.
The afternoon session was spent looking at a number of priorities for Open Access developments in the DART-Europe service for LIBER in the coming 12 months.
