    RCUK announces forthcoming OA policy

    The Research Councils UK (RCUK)
    have publicly announced that they have agreed on an OA
    policy but are not yet ready to make the policy itself public.
    Here's the entirety of yesterday's announcement:
    'RCUK has agreed [on] a position statement on access to and
    dissemination of the outputs of research funded by the Research
    Councils. This information was circulated to [the 121 UK]
    Vice-Chancellors in March, to give them an opportunity to comment
    before the document is finalised. RCUK expect to formally release
    the statement in its definitive form in mid-May 2005.'
