UKOA Annual Science Meeting 2013 (University of St Andrews)

8th August 2013

The 2013 UKOA Annual Science Meeting (ASM) was once again well attended and provided a dynamic and supportive forum in which UKOA scientists and stakeholder could discuss the progress of UKOA science, wider issues relating to OA and future direction of research effort and other activities.

This year's ASM also included a webcast of the joint UKOA / GOA-ON session, which will be available for download soon.

Each consortia gave presentations about how their work has progressed over the last year and emerging preliminary results. Most of the presentations from the meeting are available below, in order of the meeting programme.
