PSF Specific Support to Malta on the Development of a National Open Access policy

Policy Support Facility project to support Malta in developing a tailor-made Open Access policy

The aim of the Policy Support Facility (PSF) Specific Support to Malta was to provide external advice and operational recommendations to the country's authorities in developing a tailor-made Open Access policy both in relation to access to publications and access to data.

In particular, the PSF Specific Support assisted Malta to determine the right path for a smooth transition to an Open Access environment, by providing guidance on:

  1. Defining the vision, goals and scope of the National Open Access policy
  2. Clarifying the requirements for implementation of the OA policy, including the setting-up of the required infrastructure and resources and the means for supporting and ensuring timely compliance.

Daniel Spichtinger acted on behalf of ZSI as rapporteur for this project.
