The OA Switchboard is pleased to announce our next webinar which will focus on the shared use case: Matching Publication Costs with Publication Funds that our launch customers and founding partners are currently working on collaboratively.
Open Access output is growing year-on-year and the need to collaboratively develop open infrastructure to streamline communication between stakeholders has become a priority.
As a research institution or funder, it is complex to assess if and how a certain OA publication meets requirements and to track publications, spend and sponsorship. Especially, with multiple OA strategies in parallel:
- “Administering our central OA fund is harder than we imagined since every publisher has their own system and invoicing processes.”
- “There is no way we can possibly sign OA publishing deals with every single publisher.”
- “We also want to support non-APC based and non-corresponding author based initiatives, and multi-payer models.
As a publisher, it is hard to find out if an article publication satisfies an author’s OA requirements and to secure publication funds:
- “It takes a lot of manual work to determine if a funder or institution is willing to cover an APC.”
- “Not all publishers can maintain individual agreements with hundreds of institutions and funders.”
- “For non-APC-based initiatives, it would be helpful to find financial donors.”
Participants in the OA Switchboard share an ambition to simplify the fulfillment of OA publication-level arrangements (supporting all OA business models, policies, and types of research output) and to relieve the burden on the researcher.
The eco-system to work better for everyone: learn, adjust and progress.
Join us live for this highly practical evidence-based look at how the OA Switchboard is helping to match publication costs with publication funds for all these use cases via a series of short five-minute talks and use case presentations. There will be time for questions and discussions following.
