New tender for PEER project on economics of OA

The PEER (Publishing and the Ecology of European Research) Project has released its latest tender, on the economics of green OA. The PEER project is a massive collaboration of publishers, repositories and researchers to study experimentally the effects of self-archiving on publishing. The behavioral and usage research strands of the project already have begun.

Under this tender, up to €50,000 is available for the researchers chosen. The deadline for proposals is October 29, 2009. Research is expected to be completed by October 2010.

P.S. As a reminder, this and other calls for proposals are listed on the Open Access Directory. OAD is a wiki, so you can edit it to add any other relevant CFPs now or in the future, along with the many other topics OAD covers.
