Sustainable non-APC publishing models (9th OpenAIRE workshop - February 2019)

bielefeld workshop1

 

In today’s publishing landscape there are several paths to Open Access (OA) publishing. A common and much discussed way of financing OA publishing is through Article Processing Charges (APC). However, over the recent years, several alternatives have been developed that do not rely on APCs. Consortia models, community-driven approaches, funder financed platforms etc. This is a path often overlooked.


Previously OpenAIRE launched two calls to fund non-author fee based open access publishing initiatives. The results of which you can find here for the 1st call and here for the 2nd call.
Under OpenAIRE Advance, we aim to continue this effort and showcase the range of models available (including organizational aspects),  assess their relative strengths and weaknesses, conduct cross-disciplinary analyses of their efficacy in different academic contexts ,and carry out knowledge-sharing activities to promote best practice and encourage experimentation. Particular focus is thereby given to consortia models, as well as sustainability models, cost sharing and different disciplinary approaches.

Legal issues in Open Research Data (8th OpenAIRE workshop - April 2017)

The 8th OpenAIRE workshop took place as part of the RDA Ninth Plenary Meeting, Barcelona, and explored legal hindrances and possible solutions to open up research data. With the presentation of legal studies in making data open and interoperable, lessons learnt from the funders and with a critical understanding of issues related to text and data mining, data privacy and licenses, the event was an excellent opportunity to deepen all these issues.

Open Peer Review: Models, Benefits and Limitations (6th OpenAIRE workshop - June 2016)

Few would deny that peer review, as currently practiced, has its drawbacks. It is slow, unaccountable, wasteful of resources, and lacking in incentives yet it is an essential part of the scientific process. A variety of initiatives have set up experiments with different forms of Open Peer Review (OPR) making the process faster and less opaque. But what does it entail and how can it provide better scientific publications? To explore the possibilities of OPR a workshop on “Open Peer Review: Models, Benefits and Limitations”, was held by OpenAIRE in conjunction with The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Elpub) in Göttingen, June 2016.

OpenAIRE/LIBER workshop on Dealing with Data. What's the Role for the library? (3rd OpenAIRE Workshop - May 2013)

The purpose of this workshop was to explore where the library sits in the whole data lifecycle, and pinpoint some areas as to what its role might be in the future. The workshop also invited a range of scientists to present their line of research to the audience, with idea about where the library might be able to support them.

OpenAIRE Interoperability Workshop (2nd OpenAIRE Workshop - February 2013)

120 delegates gathered in University of Minho (Braga, Portugal) last week (February 7/8) to attend a workshop on Interoperability. The purpose of the workshop was to showcase the new set of OpenAIRE guidelines and to discuss and get input onto OpenAIRE’s approach to harvesting metadata. This was in addition to the wider aim of discussion the challenging issue of interoperability within the open access world and repositories. We invited therefore representatives of a range of communities to present on how they see themselves fitting into the knowledge landscape: CRIS, DataCite, publishers, data repositories, EUDAT, research infrastructures, and ultimately, from an OpenAIRE point of view, how we can potentially work together with them.

Linking Open Access publications to data – policy development and implementation (1st OpenAIRE workshop - June 2012)

On June 11, 2012 an OpenAIRE workshop was organized as a pre-Nordbib meeting at the Royal Library in Copenhagen.  The workshop was attended by over 80 people and addressed Research Data policy in the context of linking publications to research data, one of the key activity areas in the OpenAIREplus project. In order to support the linking of research output, it is recognized that policies and guidelines have to be in place to support research organisations to manage their research data.  It was thus timely that the first public workshop organised by OpenAIRE addressed some of these issues. The workshop was aimed at OpenAIRE participants, library managers, researchers, research funders, and research administrators. The final interactive session enabled participants to talk to the experts, and get to grips with some data management issues. Najla Rettberg – “OpenAIREplus: an overview of activities”,
