This session will explore these tensions with regards to monitoring, evaluating and incentivising editorial performance. How should article volumes be decided? What parameters should editorial teams work within? How should publishers evaluate Editors-in-Chief (EiCs) and how should EiCs monitor and incentivise their teams? How should editors be compensated?

OASPA has announced the next webinar — part two in Funding Open Access after the Transformation series —which will focus on the perspective of funders. At its launch in 2018, cOAlition S announced that its members would, for a “transition period,” fund open access fees for journals covered by “transformative” agreements. That move helped to establish read-and-publish deals as the leading OA business model, despite criticism that the agreements prop up the author-pays APC system. The same author-pays business model has, despite this opposition, also gained traction to fund the publication of OA books (through BPCs). This webinar features perspectives on the emerging landscape of collective and conditional open models from funders.

Supporting accessibility in scholarly communications has a number of positive impacts, both for individuals and for the broader research community. While important work is being done to make content accessible to people with disabilities, doing so makes it better for everybody. By making sure that all scholarly communications, including articles, books, and conference proceedings, are accessible to everyone, we ensure that everyone has equal access to knowledge and the ability to participate fully in the research community. This is particularly important in light of the US government mandates, including the OSTP public access mandate of 2022, which stresses the importance of equitable access to all publicly funded research, including ensuring that the research is accessible. Overall, supporting accessibility in scholarly communications is an important step towards a more inclusive, equitable, and effective research community.

Insufficient representation among editorial leadership, editorial boards, authors, and reviewers remains a key barrier to promoting an inclusive and equitable scholarly publishing industry. The systematic exclusion of groups including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), women, gender non-conforming people, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and members of the disability community from scholarly communications is harmful to both the integrity of the scientific review and publication process and to those individuals’ careers. Collecting, measuring, and using demographic data to improve these gaps in representation are important mechanisms for enabling an equitable and inclusive scholarly publishing environment.

Demographics differ by country and region, and so this session will offer global perspectives on these issues. Sponsored by SSP’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee.
