The Working Group on Expanding Access to Published Research Findings, chaired by Professor Dame Janet Finch, has published its final report. The Working Group was set up in October 2011 to examine how UK-funded research findings can be made more accessible.
From the Research Information Network website: ‘The report of the Working Group chaired by Dame Janet Finch published on 18 June recommends a programme of action to enable more people to read and use the publications arising from research. Better, faster communication of research results will bring benefits for public services and for economic growth. It will also bring improved efficiency for researchers, and opportunities for more public engagement with research.’
