Northumbria Pathfinder: OA Decision-Making tool for researchers

This decision making tool was created by the library’s Resource Discovery and Access team at Northumbria University, to enable the researcher to answer questions about their research, to find out what options are available to them and how to get further information.

In many cases, researchers will be advised how to find out more about the publisher or funder policy for themselves, or given the option to contact the Scholarly Publications team for more information.

The first version of the tool is available now and the project would really appreciate any feedback about the tool, or their OA pages more broadly, either through comments on their blog post or by contacting us at
