An interesting comment from the moderator of the E-Book and E-content 2010 meeting at UCL Centre for Publishing, which is online as a podcast…

“Most research councils [ UK, such as AHRC ] don’t even enforce the deposit [ in a public-facing repository ] of a proper report at the end of their [ research team’s ] project. I know that because they don’t make them available. And the reason why they don’t make them available is because they’re no good.”

A summary report on the entire meeting is available here.
