Informationsplattform Open Access: Call for Proposals
Kirstine's bookmarks 2019-03-29
From Google's English:
"Current open access developments are changing the dynamics in the open access field. New promoter requirements (Plan S) and national contracts (DEAL / Wiley) are trying to accelerate the move to open access. The sustainability of the open access transformation often plays a minor role. New pragmatic approaches cause high costs, whose long-term financial viability is unclear, and may strengthen publishing oligopolies. Previous formats (or their workflows), such as open access funds and repositories, have weaknesses in interoperability and scaling. New rules often take up existing practices rather than prioritizing new opportunities and services.
For the Open Access Days 2019 we look forward to receiving submissions on all aspects of Open Access. Sustainability issues are of particular interest to us: how do we create interoperable, networked, resilient services? How do we ensure oversight by academic institutions? How do we make costs transparent and how do we ensure long-term financing?"
