DEFF: Dansk Open Access Netværk 2014-04-10


[From Google's English] "Danish Open Access Network (DOAN) was terminated as a project, but the need for network around open access persist. Danish Open Access Network has been implemented in the period from November 2011 to December 2012. Project during the period continued to ensure DOAN continuation as an active network to support DEF libraries knowledge about Open Access. DOAN in the period witnessed a growing interest in participating in its activities and meetings that go beyond traditional DEF libraries. DOAN has from the beginning of the project scheduled meetings and seminars throughout the year. Five meetings were planned from the beginning of 2012 and year out. Three membership meetings and a two-day seminar with an open invitation and international participation was held. Establishment, expansion and maintenance of a network is largely dependent on the frequency of communication between network members, and this frequency is held high by an active mailing list (oar- com). The mailing list continues to act as a forum for anyone interested in Open Access and where they can absorb the experience of others and share their own. To maintain the openness of the network - where there are no stupid questions - have been reserved for the mailing list members from DEF-related institutions. The mailing list still lives on . Network has had close relations with international experience in Open Access area, particularly through the network's president. The President has been a member of Knowledge Exchanges Open Access working group [1] as well as regional coordinator for the region north of the EU FP7 project OpenAIRE [2]. Finally, the network end of the project work on a proposal for a model of the network's sustainability when DEF support has ceased. The report identifies a need to expand the knowledge sharing and networking out to more stakeholders and to get a closer affiliation between practitioners and policy makers. The expectation of the coming DEF Project Research Documentation and Communication will continue parts of the network activities, which has been the primary part of the Danish Open Access Network. This project will simultaneously ensure the relationship between OA practitioners and decision makers in establishing an advisory board and a link to the national steering committee for Open Access to Education and Research Ministry has formed in 2014.
