  • This is the home page of the Open Access Tracking Project (OATP). ISSN 2578-7020.
  • Suggested short URL for this page = bit.ly/o-a-t-p
  • OATP is a crowd-sourced social-tagging project running on free software to capture new developments on open access to research.
  • Its mission is (1) to create real-time alerts for OA-related news and comment, and (2) to organize knowledge of the field, by tag or subtopic, for easy searching and sharing.
  • OATP publishes a comprehensive primary feed of new OA developments, and hundreds of smaller secondary feeds on subtopics or subsets, for example, one feed for each project tag, one for each search, and one for each user-created boolean combination of its other feeds.
  • OATP runs on TagTeam, open-source software developed specifically for OATP and now available for open, tag-based research projects on any topic. See the OATP hub within TagTeam. TagTeam stores all OATP tag records for deduping, export, preservation, modification, and search. OATP started on Connotea and moved to TagTeam in September 2012.


OATP entered its all-volunteer phase on September 1, 2018. We invite your help in tagging OA-related news and comment, recruiting new taggers, and spreading the word. See our page on how to start tagging for OATP, and share it with others who might be interested.
