OATP (Open Access Tracking Project)✎
Harvard Open Access Project, Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, Harvard University
OATP is the most comprehensive source of news about open access to research. It is crowd-sourced, and uses social tagging to capture news and comment on OA.
The OATP mission is:
- to provide a real-time alert service for OA-related news and comment
- to organize knowledge of the field by tag or subtopic.
The project publishes a comprehensive primary feed of new OA developments, and hundreds of smaller secondary feeds on OA subtopics, one for each project tag. OATP runs on TagTeam, open-source software developed specifically for OATP and now available for open, tag-based research projects on any topic. TagTeam stores all OATP tag records for deduping, export, preservation, modification, and search.
