A Plan S for books: Voices from the Community

What should a Plan S for books look like? This is a question we’ve been thinking about at the Open Access Books Network (OABN) — and we want to hear from as many members of the OA books community as possible as we seek to answer it.

Presenters include the presidents and representatives of associations from Portugal, Spain, Brazil, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

The workshop will be divided in two panels. The first one, dedicated to the report presentation of the Open Access Journals study, will have as speakers Arianna Becerril-García (Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México, Redalyc) and Pierre Mounier (OpenEdition, OPERAS), with moderation by Delfim Leão (University of Coimbra, OPERAS). The study was commissioned by cOAlition S and funded by Science Europe in order to gain a better understanding of the OA diamond landscape.

The second panel brings together the representatives from Latin American and Iberian academic publishers associations to discuss how their countries can contribute to the boosting of multilingualism and bibliodiversity in academic publishing. The panel will receive the participation from João Caetano (Universidade Aberta, APEES), Ana Isabel González (Universidad de Oviedo, UNE), Jezio Hernani Gutierre (Universidade Estadual Paulista, ABEU) and Sayri Karp Mitastein (Universidad de Guadalajara, EULAC).

Open Access Diamond Journals – report presentation: key findings, key recommendations, and kick-start actions

SummaryThis is the first study of its kind. It was commissioned by cOAlition S and funded by Science Europe in order to gain a better understanding of the OA diamond landscape. It is the culmination of work undertaken from June 2020 to February 2021 by a consortium of 10 organisations: OPERASSPARC EuropeUtrecht UniversityDOAJUiT The Arctic University of NorwayLIBEROASPAENRESSHRedalyc-AmeliCA, and CSI. The in-depth report shines light on a community-driven open access publishing model. The OA diamond model promotes both inclusivity and bibliodiversity as it serves a wide range of disciplines, languages, countries and communities. It makes open access publishing truly accessible to all since it removes some of the financial hurdles that researchers struggle with. The findings and recommendations point to clearly defined areas where research funding organisations, institutions, scholarly societies and infrastructures can help OA diamond thrive in the future and assist journals in complying with Plan S.

TRIPLE ThatCamp #1 – Discovering Discovery: Envision your ideal ecosystem for exploring research resources
May 11 @ 9:30 am – 5:00 pm
TRIPLE ThatCamp #1 – Discovering Discovery: Envision your ideal ecosystem for exploring research resources
What is it about?

The ThatCamp #1 is meant to provide a forum to share concepts, strategies and resources for discovering research and getting research discovered. The event is an opportunity to learn from each other, brainstorm together, identify roadblocks, raise concerns and dream up solutions on a peer-to-peer level. Join us to explore and discuss the depths of “discovery”!

The TRIPLE project’s main goal is to develop GOTRIPLE, an innovative multilingual and multicultural discovery solution for the social sciences and humanities (SSH). GOTRIPLE will provide a single access point for a variety of users (researchers, institutions such as universities and libraries, enterprises, consultancies and media representatives)

  • to discover and reuse open scholarly SSH resources, i.e. research data and publications, across disciplinary and language boundaries
  • to find and connect with other researchers and projects
  • to make use of innovative tools to support research (e.g. visualisation, annotation, trust building system, social network and recommender system)
  • to discover new ways of funding research (e.g. crowdfunding platform)

Therefore, we would like to find out more about future users’ perspectives on their research discovery journey:

  • How would you define “discovery” in the research cycle?
  • What is your epistemological stance on “discovery” in a research context?
  • What are your current strategies for discovering research resources?
  • How do you make sure your own research gets discovered?
  • What are you struggling with technologically?

Your discussions will help shape what we create!
