OpenAIRE has recently released its "Studies on Subject-Specific
Requirements for Open Access Infrastructure". Designed as a comparative
study covering five disciplines (Health, Climate, Agriculture, ICT,
e-infrastructures) it provides in-depth insight into researchers'
behaviour and current practices. With a focus on research workflows,
literature and data management the case studies address key questions on
how subject-specific needs can be represented in an Open Access
infrastructure. Moreover, each case study provides a vision and
principles for future information services to further exploit OA
principles from a disciplinary perspective as well as advices to future
directions for funding agencies.

The study is available both as an ebook and in individual chapters,
consisting of an introduction, six subject-specific case studies from
highly qualified subject specialists and a comparative conclusion.
