SPARC Europe is organising the Equity and diversity in Open Access. National and regional OA publishing platforms webinar, on the 2nd of December 2021, starting at 3 PM CET.
The aim of the webinar is to raise awareness of some of the community-governed, publicly-funded not-for-profit national and regional OA publishing platforms.
Experts from Croatia, France, Finland, the Netherlands and Spain will talk about their initial influences and motivations for establishing national and regional platforms. During a panel discussion they will also mention the challenges they have encountered and share the lessons they have learned when joining forces and collaborating. The audience will also have the occasion to get involved during a Q&A session.
Join this seminar to learn what national or regional OA platforms already exist in Europe, what opportunities and challenges come with setting up such a platform and to get best practices from experts in the field. You can register here.
