Learning from national open access platforms
WhenTuesday, April 25, 2023, 14:00 - 15:00
Publish OA, co-led by the Royal Irish Academy and Trinity College Dublin, is pleased to announce a webinar that will focus on the founding and evolution of national open access (OA) platforms.
Publish OA was created in response to the Irish government’s target of achieving 100% open access to publicly funded scholarly publications by 2030 and is funded by the National Open Research Forum (NORF). The project will run until November 2024; its key objective is to evaluate the feasibility of establishing a national OA platform for journals and books for Ireland.
Existing national OA platforms have been successful in helping publishers comply with OA requirements and have agreed to share their experiences through this webinar. The presentations will cover the creation of the platforms, principles adhered to, technical requirements, business models used to sustain these platforms and any lessons learnt.
These presentations are open to the public.
Panelists include Antti-Jussi Nygård and Sami Syrjämäki of journal.fi, and Jan Willem Wijnen from openjournals.nl. Journal.fi is a journal management and publishing service provided by the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies. It features 130 Finnish scholarly journals. Openjournals.nl is a diamond open-access platform for scientific journals, which was launched in 2021. It now hosts 24 journals, with a new journal being added almost every month.
