Open access to publications & data

We advise funding bodies, universities and academic publishers on open science, and support them in making the transition to new business models and ways of working.

Scholarly communication

We engage researchers, librarians, publishers and research users to help our clients to make sense of key developments in scholarly communication, assess new market opportunities, and take action accordingly.

Realising the potential of digital technologies

We investigate the impact of new technologies like cloud-computing and text and data mining on the way research is communicated and re-used, and help clients position themselves to reap the benefits arising.
