Open Access Community Events
Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum | Opening Access
In 2021, all research supported by participating Coalition S funders must be published in open access journals and platforms compliant with Plan S principles. Although great progress has been made to date by all stakeholders in implementing these principles, many challenges still remain.
The 3rd Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum is intended to bring together stakeholders from across the scholarly communications landscape to discuss the progress of the transition to open. The conference will present the different perspectives of policy makers, libraries and publishers and serve as a forum for sharing common challenges and solutions. As the focus moves from subscriptions to APCs, the forum will present global perspectives, and explore some of the new inequalities faced by research communities.
Looking to the future, as more parts of the research workflow become open, the forum will also explore the challenges of operating in an open world and will provide an update on initiatives that have been developed to help communities navigate an open landscape. Topics will include open research infrastructures, preprints and open data.
We would like to invite all relevant stakeholders within the research and scholarly communications community to join us and share their experiences, views and opinions.
We look forward to welcoming you to our virtual conference!
