Open Access Button Consultation Survey

The Open Access Button is an online tool tracking instances of people being denied access to published research across the globe - it then displays this information on a map for the world to see. Our launch late last year was covered in the Guardian, Scientific American, several Open Access themed year in reviews, and more. You can view the map and download the button at openaccessbutton.org or find out more on our blog at blog.openaccessbutton.org.

Recently we have seen a successful launch of the Open Access Button Beta product and put together an international team of students to lead the project moving forward. In order to build and launch Open Access Button 2.0, we’re seeking input from a variety of stakeholders to shape the Button project’s future.

This survey will form a key part of our consultation work and we encourage anyone interested in the Open Access Button to complete this. The survey is a short four pages to collect information on what you're working on, what you think we should be doing, and whether we could work together. It should take less than 15 minutes to complete, but the questions are flexible paragraph answers so you can provide us with as much detail as you like.
