Impact of Social Sciences – SCOSS: strengthening the network of services that underpin open science and ensuring its sustainability

peter.suber's bookmarks 2017-11-22

Summary:

"Many have come to depend heavily upon the large ecosystem of non-commercial services that support open access and open science. However, many of these services are not financially secure; a concern the Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS) was formed to address, calling on the academic and library communities to help with funding. Vanessa Proudman describes how SCOSS aims to help secure an infrastructure of freely available open access and science services subsidised by a community of policymakers and stakeholders. The first two services to be presented for funding consideration are the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and SHERPA RoMEO, with plans to accept future applications from qualified services twice a year."
