"2023 SSP Training Series: Open Access

July 19 & 20, 2023 12 PM – 2 PM ET

This highly interactive workshop series will be of interest to both early-career professionals as well as those more experienced in scholarly communications who want to enhance their understanding of the latest developments in open access publishing and their contexts in the wider academic ecosystem. Choose to attend both sessions or either session separately.

Session 1: OA 101: The Basics (Wednesday, July 19, 2023 12:00 - 2:00 pm ET)

Over the past two decades, Open Access publishing has evolved from an ideal into a widely accepted practice in scholarly communications. Participants in this introductory workshop will learn about the history and evolution of OA principles and practices, starting from the Budapest Open Access Initiative of 2002 through to Plan S and the recent OSTP memo, with particular emphasis on distinguishing green and gold OA. Participants will explore how these considerations impact publishing at both the article and journal level and how copyright and creative commons licenses may also be a factor in author compliance with funder mandates. 

Session 2: OA 201: The Models (Thursday, July 20, 2023 12:00 - 2:00 pm ET)

Open access publishing is funded through a variety of different models including micropayments, transformative agreements, pure publish agreements, memberships, and collective action. Participants in this workshop will learn about the various business models, their applicability in different contexts, and how they can complement one another. The workshop will also explore how these different models impact author compliance with funder mandates."
