Work packages

The project work packages (WPs) were developed based on a workshop with invited representatives of UK universities and subsequent consultation of workshop participants, further interested parties, and an advisory group. The workshop identified a number of use cases, based on the following main functions:

-   support quality assurance of OA books;
-   aggregation and deposit of OA books and chapters;
-   improve dissemination and discovery of OA books;
-   report about OA policies and usage 

The outcomes of the workshop were used to develop a set of identified user needs, possible actions or solutions to address those needs, and possible pilots or work packages to validate the use cases and draft service specifications.

These were then used for subsequent consultation of workshop participants, further interested parties, and an advisory group.

The consultation process resulted in the following work packages:

  1. Knowledge exchange
  2. Publisher information
  3. Metadata
  4. Aggregation
  5. Impact / reporting
  6. Green OA
  7. Evaluation
