Toolkit for Open Access support staff

The opeNWorks project team is pleased to release a toolkit for Open Access support staff. The toolkit has been designed in response to feedback received at our December workshop and from project partners. It comprises guidance and materials for staff who are in a new Open Access support role or for whom Open Access is only a small part of their wider role.  It contains the following materials:

  1. Introductory guide to Open Access for support staff
  2. ‘Ask an OA colleague’ Q&A wiki prototype
  3. Customisable Open Access presentation template and supporting notes

The opeNWorks project aims to develop a community of good Open Access practice in the North West.  In the next phase of the project we will create an online hub where the toolkit materials will be hosted and the ‘Ask an OA colleague’ facility will go live.

We welcome feedback on this resource.  Please send comments to
