Generic Risk Analysis - Open Access for your institution
Sale, AHJ (2006) Generic Risk Analysis - Open Access for your institution. Technical Report. Unpublished. (Unpublished)
|PDF - Requires a PDF viewer|
This is a generic risk analysis for any institution (university, research organization, etc) contemplating the installation of an Open Access Repository. It covers the major risks identified by experienced repository operators. The key risks are 2.1b, 2.3 and 2.8, and actions are recommended to reduce these risks to 'low' (scoring 6 or below out of a possible 25). If these actions are taken, establishing an Open Access Repository is truly a low risk operation.
This analysis does not specifically address benefits of an Open Access Repository, which can be found elsewhere. It is assumed that your institution has made an in-principle decision, at least.
Thanks to all the members of the international community of Open Access who contributed to this document.
