The theme is “Open Access Agreements” and we’ve invited four guest speakers, all part of the research community, to contribute with their perspectives and experiences. Keep an eye on our channels where we’ll be introducing the speakers as we get closer to the webinar.
Sign up and join us for an hour of inspiring OA reflections and discussions!Increasingly, institutions, consortia, and funders sign agreements with publishers to cover the full or partial cost of Article Processing Charges (APCs) for their authors to publish articles in open access. According to the ESAC market watch, in 2021 over 160,000 articles were published in open access via such agreements. Title lists of eligible journals vary from agreement to agreement and don't always include all of the publisher's journals - which makes it difficult for authors to understand the exact conditions for publishing their articles open access.
