- OATP uses social tagging to capture new developments on open access to research. The OATP mission is (1) to offer a real-time alert service for OA-related news and comment, and (2) to organize knowledge of the field by tag or subtopic. The project publishes a primary feed of new OA developments, and hundreds of secondary feeds on OA subtopics, one for each project tag.
- OATP runs on TagTeam, open-source software specifically written for OATP and now available for social-tagging projects on any topic. TagTeam stores all OATP tag records for deduping, export, preservation, modification, and search.
- Peter Suber launched OATP in April 2009, and wrote a full-length description of it in the SPARC Open Access Newsletter for May 2009. OATP started on Connotea and moved to TagTeam in September 2012.
- The OATP pages form a section within the larger Harvard Open Access Project (HOAP).
