Details

This report, commissioned by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and undertaken by Research Consulting, sets out a series of recommended evaluation questions to assess the effectiveness of the UKRI open access policy.

It considers approaches to answer these, their feasibility and expected resource intensity, while accounting for the diversity of practices and stakeholders across the research landscape.

The recommended evaluation questions were identified through interviews and workshops with a range of external stakeholders and in-depth desk research investigating existing monitoring and evaluation activities.

The report also provides an overview of stakeholder views about key considerations for monitoring and evaluating the policy including principles of best practice.

The report annex sets out recommended approaches to answering the questions, including data sources, aggregation and analysis methodologies.

UKRI will consider the outcomes and recommendations of this project in developing its final monitoring and evaluation framework.
