The Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) has announced that its 2020 conference will take place online in September, instead of in Warsaw as originally planned.
The 2020 conference will address open access at a time of global challenge, taking on the demands and opportunities for open scholarship in relation to past and future crises in different regions of the globe. OASPA 2020 will also be a forum for collective reflection on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and OASPA’s ongoing endeavour to ensure scholarship is open and accessible to all.
The program committee is working hard to deliver an exceptional series of sessions, exploring the latest developments in global open access policy; funding and operational models for equitable open access; moves toward community-owned, open infrastructure; engaging researchers in open scholarship; pricing and cost transparency; perspectives from small and scholar-led publishers; and the future of open scholarship. Sessions will take place online during the week beginning Monday, September 21, accommodating a range of timezones.
While further details will be released as soon as possible, interested parties may register their interest if they would like to receive information on how to attend as well as program updates as they become available.
Online or in-person, the OASPA annual meeting brings the open access community together to discuss new developments and innovations in scholarly publishing and unite in the shared goal to enable research around the world to be openly accessible.
OASPA will host a broad range of interdisciplinary global perspectives and welcome attendees of all backgrounds at all stages of their careers who are working in publishing, librarianship, government, higher education, funding agencies, nonprofits, and other affiliated industries.
