HOAP launched in 2011 to foster 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.

Policy consultations

HOAP is available to consult with universities, funding agencies,
publishers, scholarly societies, and other institutions developing OA
policies. These confidential pro bono consultations can assist
with policy language, strategy, and frequently heard questions,
objections, and misunderstandings. If you're interested, please contact Peter Suber.

Some of HOAP's work is confidential, for example, consulting with
institutions about their OA policies. For the rest of our work, see our
periodic public updates.
