Research project document

With more than 2 million page views last year, the United Kingdom ranks fourth among countries for consulting our platform. This consultation has also grown significantly over the past few years, with an 180% increase in 2018!

In order to better understand the growing use of our collection of 179 Canadian journals in the social sciences and humanities by users located in the United Kingdom, we are currently conducting a research project in collaboration with Raym Crow, senior consultant at SPARC (sparcopen.org) and associate director of the Chain Bridge Group.

The aim is to study the implementation of an innovative OA model based in part on usage statistics, and adapted to the economic and cultural realities of UK libraries.
