Join a series of LIBSENSE online meetings “Co-designing collaborative free and open source open access publishing infrastructures”, organized by WACREN, EIFL and the Coko Foundation. We welcome editors and publishers, researchers, librarians and tool builders. 

Previously scheduled as a side event in the now cancelled WACREN 2020 conference, this first of four online meetings will take place on June 24 at 9:00 UTC and will focus on the audit of needs and tools: 

  • Needs assessment for open access scholarly publishing in Africa

  • Open source tools and services for publishing books, journals and textbooks

  • Training and support needs 

The meetings that follow in July, August, and September (dates TBC) will focus on

  • Identifying areas for collaborations around shared free and open source open access publishing infrastructure,
  • Designing training and support programmes and
  • Framing the Coalition for Open Access Publishing Infrastructures in Africa: tools, training, hosting, and advice.
