RWJF’s support of OA.report will enable us to work with RWJF to trial the tool, and use that experience to make improvements that support it’s use for other funders and libraries. As a part of the project, we’ll analyze the Foundation’s Open Access policy, import existing data from their repository of grant outputs, and measure the impact of their publications.

We want to thank Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for their generous support.
