The Mediterranean Open Access Network (MEDOANET) is carrying out surveys among research performing institutions, research funders and academic and research publishers in order to map the current situation of Open Access in terms of policies and practices in Greece, Turkey, Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.
The surveys are running from April 10th to June 10th, 2012.
Please take part in one of the following three surveys:
