The scholarly communication ecosystem has evolved significantly since LIBER issued its 5 Principles for Open Access negotiations in 2017, and with institutions setting aggressive open science agendas, libraries are under increasing pressure to deliver more and diverse open access publishing opportunities to researchers.

To support libraries in this process, LIBER has issued four new Urgent Recommendations for Open Access negotiations, that aim to support libraries in developing more effective open access strategies. In this workshop, participants will explore different case studies for each of the four Urgent Recommendations together with members of LIBER’s OA Working Group, exchanging experiences and good practice. Participants will come away with knowledge of the most recent benchmarks in open access negotiations with publishers and strategic insights for bolstering their open access strategies.
