Open Access Community Events
UKSG Introduction to open access publications lifecycle and compliance
6 February @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£185 – £235
This is a one-day event exploring the increasing role for librarians and publishers in supporting prepublication workflows for journal articles and other research outputs.
The rise of open access and associated compliance requirements has created an increasing role for librarians in supporting pre-publication workflows for journal articles and other research outputs. It has also led research institutions to develop a widening range of services and systems to support publication and manage compliance.
This course will give a basic introduction to this rapidly evolving area. In particular it will:
- provide an overview of the research and funding landscape
- outline the key stages in the publication lifecycle of a journal article from submission to publication, noting the key differences between Green and Gold publication
- summarise the typical requirements for compliance with government policies and funder mandates, and relate these to the publication routes for Green and Gold publication
- the complementary roles of publishers, libraries and intermediaries in supporting these stages, and the typical activities that they each perform during the life-cycle
- explain the part that preprints play in scholarly communication
- look at selected services, systems and standards designed to support and manage the process
- explain how new policies (eg Plan S) are affecting compliance requirements
