OpenAIRE has recently released its "Studies on Subject-Specific
Requirements for Open Access Infrastructure".
Designed as a comparative study covering five disciplines (Health, Climate,
Agriculture, ICT, e-infrastructures) it provides in-depth insight into
researchers' behaviour and current practices. With a focus on research
workflows, literature and data management the case studies address key
questions on how subject-specific needs can be represented in an Open Access
infrastructure. Moreover, each case study provides a vision and principles
for future information services to further exploit OA principles from a
disciplinary perspective as well as advices to future directions for
The study is available both as a free ebook and in individual chapters,
consisting of an introduction, six subject-specific case studies from
highly qualified subject specialists and a comparative conclusion.

OpenAIRE (Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe) is a 3-year
European Commission (EC) funded initiative that supports the implementation
of the EC's Open Access Pilot and the European Research Council's
Guidelines for Open Access. Together with the recently launched
OpenAIREplus project both initiatives work towards the goal to develop an
Open Access participatory infrastructure for scientific information.
