Transpose - a new database of almost 3000 journal policies for peer review and preprints

Publishers’ policies on pre-prints, citation, licensing and versioning can be at best hard to find and at times confusing. This can hinder the research process and act as a barrier for researchers, as well as librarians and funders. A new grassroots initiative called Transpose, launched in June 2019 will do much to remedy this and to contribute to the open science landscape.

Defining the Future of Scholarly Communication in Latin America

There is no “one size fits all” solution for open access. In Latin America, which has a very strong tradition of open access, the favoured approach has been the use of publicly-funded, non-commercial services.
