Your views on open access publishing are needed!

The SOAP project is currently conducting an online survey to assess researchers’ experiences with open access publishing. It is primarily aimed at active researchers in public and private organizations, from all fields of the research in the sciences and humanities and focuses on publication of research articles in (open access) peer-reviewed journals.

If you would like to contribute to shaping the public discourse on open access, please visit .

It should take 10-15 minutes to complete. Please share this news with your research collaborators, so that the views from your community will be properly represented.

The survey outcome will be made public and openly shared with the publishers, research funding agencies and European Commission, libraries and researchers.
