OATP uses social tagging to capture new developments on open access to research. The OATP mission is (1) to provide a real-time alert service for OA-related news and comment, and (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.
The Open Access Tracking Project (OATP) is a project of the Harvard Open Access Project (HOAP) at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, operating under the supervision of Peter Suber.
What kinds of help are we looking for?
As a crowd based project documenting the development of open access in realtime, the Open Access Tracking Project (OATP) is looking for contributors to find and tag new information within this scope. Contributors may focus on tagging information related to OA more generally, or related subtopics.
