‘CIAO – Collaborative Institutional Assessment of Open access is a benchmarking tool for assessing institutional readiness for Open Access (OA) compliance.

Here you will find a version which you can download and a sheet about how you can use it.
We need feedback
This is a pilot version so we are very keen of getting feedback on how it has been used in different institutions. How useful is it, how can we make it better? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking at alternative ways of delivering this tool. We are also developing similar tool to be completed by individuals. MIAO – My Individual Assessment of Open access .’
