Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SME) Pilot

Consultants Optimat and Iglooe have been working with Jisc Collections, SMEs and publishers on the challenges surrounding extending access to licensed academic research journal content to SME users across the UK.

Four publishers are participating in the pilot which seeks to investigate and understand how SME organisations use academic research content, in order to inform a relevant business model.

The final report is expected to be available in March 2015.

For detailed information please see SME Pilot.

If we thought Christmas is cold in the UK, then spare a thought for these crew members of the 1901-4 National Antarctic Expedition. Despite freezing conditions they still managed to muster up some Christmas cheer on board.
