Welcome to the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association, OASPA.
OASPA offers a forum for bringing together the entire community of Open Access journal publishers.
Our mission is to represent the interests of Open Access (OA) journal and book publishers globally in all scientific, technical and scholarly disciplines. This mission will be carried out through exchanging information, setting standards, advancing models, advocacy, education, and the promotion of innovation.
Through a shared interest in developing appropriate business models, tools and standards to support OA publishing, we can ensure a prosperous and sustainable future to the benefit of our members and the scholarly communities they serve. OASPA would like to thank SPARC Europe for its support during our initial phase of operation.
We hope you will join us as an OASPA Member!
