Pre-Conference Workshop 8: Diamond Open Access in Europe and beyond

Pre-Conference Workshop 8: “Diamond Open Access in Europe and beyond”
Organised by the DIAMAS Project

In this workshop, we would like to present the DIAMAS project and its initial results. The workshop would have at least three goals.

  1. First we will present the EC sponsodred DIAMAS project aims at mapping the landscape of institutional Open Access publishing in the ERA, and provide non-technical tools to align, promote, and make sustainable scholar-driven and institution-driven Open Access publishing.
  2. Secondly, we would like to present the Action Plan for Diamond Open Access which includes a global group of institutions with a declared interest in Diamond Open Access.
  3. Finally, we will invite Hungarian and Eastern European institutional and Diamond Open Access editors and service providers to share their experience with us with a view to collaboration.

In this final section, participants will be invited to engage and discuss their experiences of institutional publishing from the perspective of their library – this feedback will be used within the project as libraries are a key stakeholder group of DIAMAS. Of course the program is open to changes and amendments ahead of the conference, depending on the speakers who will be available. These will at least include Vanessa Proudman (SPARC Europe), Nora Papp Le Roy & Johan Rooryck (ESF-cOALition S). We have also received names of Hungarian Diamond editors who we will invite to participate to make this a community event.
