Dear FP project coordinators and grant recipients,

Please find below an invitation to contribute to a survey on open access 
conducted by the EC-funded project SOAP (Study of Open Access Publishing).

Many thanks for taking the time to offer your input to this important 

Best regards,


Your views on open access publishing are needed!

A debate is under way concerning open access publishing, peer review and 
publication fees and your views matter.
The SOAP Project(*) is asking your help in filling an online survey to 
assess researchers' opinions on these important issues.

If you would like to contribute to shaping the public discourse on open 
access, please visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/soap_survey_k. It 
should take 10-15 minutes to complete.

We would appreciate if you would share this message widely among your 
work colleagues, research collaborators and project partners so that the 
views of your community are properly represented.

The survey outcome will be made public and the resulting insights as 
well as recommendations will be openly shared with the European 
Commission and other research funding agencies, publishers, and libraries.

(*) Note: The SOAP  project is co-funded by the European Commission 
under the FP7 Grant Agreement Nr. 230220 (Science in Society Programme).
