Quotes about Open Access at Warwick
Simone Brioni – Italian
The WRAP program is really effective, and it has improved the impact of my research. One of the people responsible for this program came to my office and carefully informed me about this great opportunity
Nicola Pratt – PAIS
It’s good there are people working on WRAP who I’m sure understand what the difference is between different journals’ policies. The support of the people at WRAP is very important in order to be able to tell you ‘ you can publish this but you can’t publish that version’.
Matthew Nudds – Philosophy
The University of Warwick offers a WRAP program, which is really effective. I was informed by the university about this opportunity, and met one of the team responsible for this program, who explained to me in detail the benefits of online publications.
Mike Waterson - Economics
I looked at the journal and it had a very long embargo period, 36 months, and I thought that is unlikely to be acceptable to the Research Council, so it seemed to make sense to go for Gold.
Leslie Francis - Institute of Education
My advice would be that the Gold route enhances visibility, it enhances visibility, it enhances potential for citation, it complies with a range of policy incentives.
Ed Smith – Life Sciences
I would tell them to contact you (OA at library). I’d say if they have the opportunity to go for it then do. I don’t think there is a downside from a researcher point of view, so try and publish Open Access if you can. If you can’t go via the Gold method then go Green, through WRAP. I’d probably point them towards the library website.
