In October 2016, Research Consulting, within the scope of the OpenAIRE Work Package dealing with the FP7 Post Grant Open Access Pilot (WP5), was commissioned by LIBER to undertake an economic analysis study of the Open Access publishing market. The report (pdf) is accompanied by an Annex (pdf) which contains the mid-term evaluation of the FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot, organised by OpenAIRE. This annex will be discussed in detail in the reporting phase of the pilot, which ends on April 30th, 2017. The final report can also be found on Zenodo (doi: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.401029).
