Harvard Open Access Project (HOAP)


HOAP launched in 2011 to foster open access (OA) within Harvard, foster OA beyond Harvard, undertake research and policy analysis on OA, and provide OA to timely and accurate information about OA itself.


HOAP was funded by grants from Arcadia (2011-2016) and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (2016-2018).

HOAP continues as an unfunded project of the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society. See how this will affect the HOAP-based Open Access Tracking Project.

Policy consultations

HOAP consults with universities, funding agencies, publishers, scholarly societies, museums, governments, and other institutions developing OA policies or refining OA practices. These confidential pro bono consultations can assist with policy language, implementation, strategy, and answers to frequently heard questions, objections, and misunderstandings. For more information, please contact Peter Suber.
