Intermediaries and the payment of article processing charges (APCs)

We undertook a study in August and September on the processes involved in the payment of APCs for open access publications, and the scope for improving efficiency and effectiveness by the use of intermediaries. The study involved workshops and interiews with a range of universities, publishers, funders, and possible intermediaries including subscription agents, reproduction rights organisations, a start-up company, and JISC Collections. The report has now been published and is available here.
