At the end of last week, the first OPERAS Conference "Open Scholarly Communication in Europe. Addressing the Coordination Problem” took place in Athens. OPERAS is a European research infrastructure project for the promotion of open access and open science especially in the social sciences and humanities. The OA2020 initiative took part in form of the OA2020-DE project leader Dirk Pieper in the session "Flipping Journals or Changing the System? The Need for Coordination". The aim of the presentation was to show that OA2020 supports multiple ways of open access transformation, which is more than journal flipping and APCs, and at the same time to made clear that empirically relevant OA publishing in these areas takes place and APCs and offsetting are essential factors of the transformation.
