In order to better understand the needs, challenges and gaps in policy-making for open access books, the PALOMERA project is launching a survey to gather your feedback.
Academic books continue to play an important role in scholarly production, particularly in the social sciences and humanities. Nevertheless, academic books have not been a focal point for open access policy-makers so far. PALOMERA is an EU-funded project that addresses this challenge. EUA is in the Advisory Board of the project.
This survey is a contribution to an extensive collection of data on the needs, obstacles and challenges of policy-making for open access books. Based on the evidence given by the survey results, PALOMERA will provide actionable recommendations for the development of open access book policies on the European, national and institutional level. By taking part in this survey, you are making a contribution to the research needed to speed up the transformation of the book market to open access.
The survey is in English and can be completed online until 15 September 2023.
