Seeking Sustainability: Publishing Models for an Open Access Age
|Date:||29 March 2020 to 29 March 2020|
|Location:||Brighton, United Kingdom|
Hardly a week goes by, it seems, without the announcement of a cancellation of a Big Deal, the signing of a Transformative Agreement, or a policy action to drive open access. Library consortia around the world are turning to new, non-traditional models as thinking shifts on how to provide researchers with access to content as well as support for publications. Publishers are grappling with subscriptions losing value and needing to develop new revenue models. Complicating these efforts are emerging institutional and funder mandates, including the evolving Plan S requirements and the rumored Executive Order in the United States, as well as the ecosystem of needs and pathways of development for different disciplines and regions.
This highly interactive pre-conference seeks to engage questions such as: What models are emerging for the open access publishing age? Are these models adaptable to meet the needs of different types of institutions and publishers? Are they sustainable over the long term? Do they serve the needs of authors as well as funders, governments, institutions, etc.? Hear from publishers and librarians exploring new models and their sustainability as well as concerns of those organizations, including small and society, who fear they may be left out of the discussion. The program will include a keynote overview of current models, a panel exploring models-in-progess, and small group discussions focusing on key issues and possible next steps.
