Scenarios

The following scenarios pick out specific issues relating to open access and versioning.  They aim to illustrate how each can be managed in a positive manner.

The scenarios are based on information extracted from the VERSIONS interviews.  The interviews were conducted with a range of researchers from the NEREUS partner institutions, and sought to identify current attitudes and practice with regard to electronic document storage and open access.
