Wellcome seeks comments on implementing the principles of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA)

The University of Aberdeen Library invites members of our academic community to submit comments on Wellcome’s new Open Access Policy, to help in the development of guidance around this issue.

Wellcome has published draft guidance for funded research organisations on implementing the principles set out in the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).

The requirement to publicly commit to the DORA principles is a key element of Wellcome’s new Open Access Policy which will come into force in January 2021.

To help them shape and refine the guidance, they are now inviting feedback. Simon Bains, University Librarian, is leading on a response for Aberdeen, and welcomes any comments by 5pm on Wednesday 19 February. Please send any comments to simon.bains@abdn.ac.uk.
