I am posting this to this list as it is a specifically Scottish question – for other issues I recommend use of UKCoRR or ARMA OA Special Interest Group mailing lists to get wider input.
Here is what I am wondering:
If a paper is funded by both a COAF funder and CSO then we should probably see if CSO will pay or contribute to the cost rather than charge the total to COAF. Presumably at some point COAF might question such a practice. Of course this is more admin and time consuming for author and OA teams.
