A major survey of UK Academics released today examines the attitudes of researchers and practitioners working within higher education. It sheds light on their behaviours, including their reliance on digital technologies, the Internet and open access.
We’ve all heard of impressive examples of individuals who applied scientific research, published through Open Access, to produce innovations in science and medicine. Now, RLUK has joined forces with an impressive array of organisations - including Google, PLOS and Wellcome Trust - to recognize these achievements through the new Accelerating Science Award Program, or ASAP.
