SPARC Europe highlights of 2022

infodocketGARY's bookmarks 2023-01-31


"Some key highlights for 2022 were:

  • We properly got into our new facilitator role to support the Council for National Open Science Coordination in 2022 by managing a range of knowledge-exchange conversations with scores of national OS policymakers from across Europe.
  • The DIAMAS Project — ‘Developing Institutional Open Access Publishing Models to Advance Scholarly Communication’ began in the autumn of 2022. As one of 23 project partners, we will lead the work on supporting the sustainability of institutional publishing, and we are excited about managing engagement for the project.
  • For more equity in Open, we made headway on reforming copyright for Open Access through a new project, Project Retain, where we worked hard to gather insights into the rights retention and open licensing policies of institutions of Higher Education, funders, and publishers.
  • The Open Access Books Network (OABN), which we helped build and co-coordinate, became an OPERAS Special Interest Group (SIG). This new organisational move will bring more stability to this important network.
  • Our European Network of Open Education Librarians (ENOEL) continued to grow, strengthen, advocate, and develop Open Education (OE) across the continent.
  • We are proud to announce that SCOSS – together with over 300 libraries worldwide – has so far helped raise 4.85 million EUR to sustain Open Science Infrastructure. One-third of these pledgers are recurrent! We are so grateful that even in hard economic times, libraries are investing in open infrastructure...."
