The Academy invites tender applications from suitably qualified consultants to undertake an evaluation of learned societies. The first phase will be to evaluate the social and economic value of learned societies to set a benchmark for the second later phase to evaluate the impact of the move to open access publishing in the UK on learned societies.

The Invitation to Tender document will be posted to the home page of the Academy website on Wednesday, 8 May. The return date for completed tenders is Friday, 31 May.
