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:

  1. to provide a real-time alert service for OA-related news and comment
  2. 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.
