ADVANCED Open Access 2020 Transformation Lab
Prague, Czech Republik
An advanced workshop, for participants who had already attended an OA2020 Transformation Workshop, has been held 25-27 September 2018.
Pre-Conference Workshop LIBRARIES LEADING THE OPEN ACCESS TRANSFORMATION: STRATEGIES TO ACHIEVE THE VISION
The aim of the workshop is to give participants a clear understanding of the essential role that libraries have to play in the transformation of scholarly communications. The aim is also to empower the libraries with key insights in order to develop an action plan to drive the transition towards Open Access through a variety of approaches. In the first part of the workshop, we will introduce some data-driven strategies for achieving more OA and, in the second part, we will explore approaches in an interactive manner, addressing topics such as OA for e-books, Gold OA journals, as well as the transformation of paywalled journals.
Libraries have the power to lead the way in the OA transformation, and there are many ways to do so! This workshop is planned and organised by the LIBER Open Access Working Group in collaboration with OA2020 .
Open Access 2020 Transformation Workshop
For librarians and consortia staff looking to take pro-active steps to drive the transition of scholarly communications to open access.
This workshop, featuring special guest presenters and Max Planck Digital Library staff with over 10 years of experience in developing OA strategies and workflows, empowers participants with a clear understanding of the essential role librarians play in driving the transition of scholarly communications from the subscription system to open access publishing. Covering multiple strategies but with a strong focus on transformational agreements (ie offsetting, read and publish, etc.), participants will learn strategic and practical approaches to help them create and implement their own local OA2020 roadmap and have impact on a global scale. Now in its third iteration, the workshop is a fantastic opportunity to share experiences and learn best practice in managing and leading the transition to Open Access.
Colleen Campbell will deliver the keynote OA2020 and Alternative Publishing Models and participating in a panel discussion on the Transition to Open Access – Re-organizing the Payment Streams, moderated by Beate Eellend, Open Access Coordinator, National Library of Sweden, with Wilhelm Widmark, Library Director, Stockholm University; Lisbeth Söderqvist, Analyst, Swedish Research Council; and Mikael Laakso, Associate Professor, Hanken School of Economics.
