The Society invites and collates views from members, who work across the biological professions, in order to respond to open consultations. We seek to achieve a consensus of opinion and present a unified voice for the bioscience community.
The consultations we are currently in the process of formulating a response to are outlined below:
UKRI Open Access Review
The RSB will be responding to the UKRI Open Access Review. UKRI is reviewing its open access policies for peer-reviewed research articles and academic books that result from research supported by UKRI. The review aims to encourage the development of new models of open access publishing and support the adoption of open access through collaboration and alignment with national and international partners.
Closes 29 May 2020
If you would like to contribute to a response, or draw our attention to other relevant consultations, please email us.
Royal Society of Biology consultation responses which have been submitted recently can be found on our consultation responses page. We also maintain an archive of Royal Society of Biology consultation responses as a longer term record of our previous outputs.
