SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) Europe invites you to participate in a survey of research funders about open access. There is broad agreement on the value of Open Access & Open Science across Europe, but progress to date remains disproportionate across institutions, regions and countries. This survey will study the rewards and incentives for Open Science amongst funders in Europe, and the current and planned developments in Open Access and Research Data policy. The survey can be found here and will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. If you have any questions, please get in touch with Emma Richens at [email protected]

The results will be used to support growth in the number of Open Access and Open Science policies amongst funders in Europe, and to inform funders seeking to develop their existing policies. Following completion of the survey analysis, a summary of the results will be shared with all respondents for review prior to their publication later in the year. The dataset arising from this survey will also be published under an open licence, excluding personal data.
