cOAlition S will issue its policy on Open Access (OA) monographs and chapters in late 2021. As part of a strategy to gather opinions and OA book policy priorities from the OA books community to feed into this policy, SPARC Europe helped prepare a workshop with members of OPERAS, EASSH and DARIAH at the OPERAS Conference on November 2, 2020. With almost 75 attendees, the workshop focused on business models for OA books and brought together experts from the field before ending with a document sprint. The sprint allowed the community to engage online by reacting to cases made by the presenters and providing other additions.
Additional OA book policy workshops will be organised in 2021 by the OA Books Network. It will form the basis of feedback to cOAlition S to support them in their policy development for OA books. This collective effort will be shared with the community for comments in the Open Access Book Network before sharing it with cOAlition S.
SPARC Europe will be synthesising the community feedback for cOAlition S to support its policymaking on OA books.Click here to read the original press release.
