Scott Taylor will address the approach the University of Manchester has taken on the subject and will frame it in the broader context of the activities of the research services of the library.

Despite the dramatic recent increase in Open Access, many papers remain broadly inaccessible as understanding the abstract and full-text often requires a specialist
knowledge which only academics in the same field possess. Recognising the potential to amplify the University of Manchester’s research impact, and progress its social responsibility goals, the Library is building upon its established Research Services to help authors maximise the reach of their work by effectively communicating their findings to a broader range of audiences.
