The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) has released a new report: Academic Community Control of Data Infrastructure – A Roadmap for Action, to help academic institutions combat the publishing industry’s increasing control over academic data and data infrastructure.
The Roadmap for Action outlines individual and collective actions that institutions can use to maintain and regain control of their data and data infrastructure. Recognising that solutions are not one size fits all, the framework offers a range of possible options that can be adapted to each institution’s local culture and needs. Developed by SPARC in consultation with experts and stakeholders, the proposed solutions are organised into three categories - Risk Mitigation, Strategic Choices, and Community Actions.
The Roadmap for Action follows an in-depth Landscape Analysis of the academic publishing industry, released by SPARC earlier this year.
