The webinar Equity and diversity in Open Access. National and regional OA publishing platforms, will be organized by SPARC Europe on 2 December 2021 at 3-4.30 PM CET.
This webinar will raise awareness of some of the community-governed, publicly-funded not-for-profit national and regional OA publishing platforms.
It brings together voices from Croatia, France, Finland, the Netherlands and Spain. Experts from these countries will talk us through their initial influences and motivations for establishing national and regional platforms. They will share their perspectives on building and running national and regional OA publishing platforms and speak to how they have evolved over time through presentations.
A panel discussion will touch upon challenges they have encountered and share the lessons they have learned when joining forces and collaborating. We will also ask platforms about their future plans to increase collaboration be this locally or internationally. There will be good time for questions from the audience during a Q&A session.
Attend this webinar and you will learn:
- What community-governed, publicly-funded not-for-profit national and regional OA publishing platforms are already set up in Europe
- Which opportunities and challenges come with setting up a national or regional OA platform and collaborating with smaller publishers
- What the best practices for national and regional OA platforms are, as seen by experienced experts in the field
