Making Open Access Agreements More Transparent for Authors
peter.suber's bookmarks 2022-01-13
"Increasingly, institutions, consortia, and funders sign agreements with publishers to cover the full or partial cost of Article Processing Charges (APCs) for their authors to publish articles in open access. According to the ESAC market watch, in 2021 over 160,000 articles were published in open access via such agreements. Title lists of eligible journals vary from agreement to agreement and don't always include all of the publisher's journals - which makes it difficult for authors to understand the exact conditions for publishing their articles in open access.
In this webinar, hosted by Romy Beard, Publisher Relations and Business Development Manager at ChronosHub, we will look at four examples of how institutions and publishers present their open access agreements to authors. The webinar will last one hour and will include four short presentations followed by a discussion and time for questions."
