It might sound cliché, but collaboration is indeed key.
As much as competition exists between different stakeholders in the industry, the fact is that whenever possible and practical, we've all got to work together - to benefit the author.
Do you think that charges associated with OA publishing are currently being managed across stakeholder groups in a transparent and trustworthy way?
That's one of the questions we asked ourselves before we embarked on a journey to learn more about the OA Management landscape.
In collaboration with MoreBrains, we developed a survey to create a shared understanding of how the transition to Open Access takes place ─ all in support of institutions, publishers, and funders. We wanted to explore patterns of high-level trends and identify topics for community development.
Thankfully, we received a wide range of responses. So, we wrote a paper! It was reviewed by other experts within the OA space, and now we're ready to share the results with the community and discuss it all in a one-hour webinar together with the reviewers.
