[Forwarded message from Peter Suber]

To follow new developments and commentary on open access to research, subscribe to one or more feeds from the Open Access Tracking Project (OATP). We have a version to suit just about anyone.

RSS feed

Atom feed

Twitter feed

Email feed

If you don't want to subscribe to anything, then just bookmark the HTML edition and visit periodically to catch up.

To follow developments on any OA subtopic, like OA in the social sciences, OA from society publishers, OA for students, OA in Switzerland, or OA in the global south, see the OATP links page on how to construct the URL for the feed published by any OATP tag.

For the past ten days I've been publicizing the OATP transition to TagTeam. You can ignore all that now. The transition is over. Whether you're new to OA or an old hand, follow the news through one of the feeds above. (If you're an old hand, the transition means that you can stop subscribing to the old OATP feeds from Connotea.)

If you want to go beyond following OATP feeds as a reader, and help us construct them as a tagger, see the details in our transition handout.
