Creating Community-Driven Pathways to Equitable Open Scholarly Publishing – Where Are We Now 

Join us on the 27th of February at 3 PM CET to hear essential updates from three European Commission-funded projects – CRAFT-OA, DIAMAS, and PALOMERA – working towards an equitable future for scholarly communication, with academic communities at the centre. You will hear about the latest developments in their work and be able to join a discussion to share your feedback with them.

  • CRAFT-OA empowers regional journal platforms and publishing service providers to upscale, professionalise, and reach stronger interoperability with other scientific information systems, by providing services and tools. They will present the newly published “Report on Challenges and Help Measures Faced by OA Journals and Platforms” as well as give a peek at the “Diamond Discovery Hub”.
  • DIAMAS develops common standards, guidelines and practices to build capacity for the Diamond publishing sector. They will present new findings from a large study conducted across Europe, which sheds light on the operations of Diamond publishers and builds a case for how they can be supported to advance Open Science.
  • PALOMERA sets out to provide actionable recommendations and concrete resources to support and coordinate aligned funder and institutional policies for Open Access books. They will present information about the OA book policies data collected and incorporated in the Knowledge Base as well as how is this data being validated by the community.

Additionally, an external invited speaker will talk about the importance of this cross-collaboration and policies in the OA landscape. 

Be part of this conversation and help us shape the future of Open Access as a community!
