"Having raised well over 3 million EUR to sustain vital, non-commercial infrastructure and services within the Open Science community; the Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS) is once again searching for new potential candidate organisations to fund during the 2022 to 2024 SCOSS funding cycle. We welcome applications from across the world: particularly from South America, Asia and Africa although all regions should apply.

In short, this is how the initiative works: SCOSS provides the framework and funding structure, vetting potential candidates based on a defined set of criteria. The most eligible of those that pass the vigorous evaluation are then presented to the global OA/OS community of stakeholders with an appeal for monetary support in a crowdfunding-style approach.

In 2022, the SCOSS board is seeking potential candidates for preliminary assessment. At minimum, each candidate must meet the following basic qualifications:

  1. The candidate organisation must have been established for at least two years, and can demonstrate their sustainability challenge.
  2. Eligible organisations must have a non-profit status in the country in which they are based and/or be affiliated with or owned by a research or educational institution.
  3. The services or infrastructure provided by the candidate organisation must be of international relevance and must be broadly relevant to more than one discipline."
