We’re thrilled to share that The Michael J.Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) has signed up to use OA.Report to help implement its Open Access Policy.

About OA.Report
OA.Report is an open-source tool that identifies research outputs organizations have supported, analyzes their openness (including OA policy compliance), and then streamlines taking action to make results more open.

MJFF starts using OA.Report

OA.Works currently supports Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s (ASAP) open access policy implementation, and through ASAP’s partnership with MJFF and collaborative discussions, OA.Works and MJFF agreed to work together on open access policy implementation. Some areas we’re especially excited for OA.Report to support include:

  • Tracking the research they’re funding, and producing open data that can be used to demonstrate the foundation’s impact to the public via their scientific publications page.
  • Accurately assessing their Open Access Policy, including critical aspects of the policy such as relationships between publications, grants and preprint availability.
  • Benchmarking OA.Report against academic databases and search engines.
