  • We published our Tenth Report of Session 2003— 04, Scientific Publications: Free for all?, on Tuesday 20 July 2004. We received the Government Response to our Report on Tuesday 26 October. This Response appears as Appendix 1 to this Report. We have also received responses from other organisations that are the subject of our recommendations, namely the Office of Fair Trading (OFT); the Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL) and the Consortium of University Research Libraries (CURL); the Securing a Hybrid Environment for Research Preservation and Access (SHERPA) project; Research Councils UK (RCUK); and the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). These are published as appendices to this Report. Many other organisations have also published comments on our original Report.

  • The Government Response is a distillation of responses from all the Government departments and other Government organisations that have an interest in the Report. They are: the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), which took responsibility for co-ordinating the Government Response; the Department for International Development (DFID); the Department for Education and Skills (DfES); the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS); Her Majesty's Customs and Excise (HMC&E); the Department of Health (DoH); RCUK; the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE); and JISC. We have had to consider whether the Government Response that we received accurately reflects the diversity of views and interests represented by these departments and bodies.
