Schedule of Events

Monday, November 14th
11:00-12:00 ET – General Session:
Open Access and DEI: Correlations and Future Impact

Open access has been an important topic of discussion in scholarly publishing for several years. Similarly, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives are bringing about significant changes to the way publishers, journal editors, libraries, and researchers engage with the literature. This session will discuss how open access is evolving and broad initiatives that are impacting the publishing industry. Particularly, speakers will focus on the role open access plays in addressing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. How does open access impact researchers from underrepresented communities? What are the benefits and challenges of transformational agreements? What role does open access play in increasing collaboration?

12:30-1:30 ET – Didactic 1:
Fundamentals of the Next Wave of Open Access

Recent years have seen an explosion of new business models and new approaches around OA, making it impossible to keep up with everything–especially if you are an early career or new to the space. This session hopes to boil down the complexity to a few distinct stakeholder perspectives: large publisher, society publisher, and library, to provide practical information on approaches, business models, and new forms of engagement. How are libraries taking an active role in negotiating transformative agreements? How are smaller publishers experimenting with new approaches? How are larger publishers changing the game in terms of author outreach and communications? There is a lot to learn, but we hope this will provide an interesting starting point, whether you consider yourself an OA newbie or want to learn about other aspects of the model.

Global Trends in Open Access

Most North American and Western European journals are invested in models that are APC based and driven by mandates from funders such as Plan S, but looking a bit further afield, the picture looks quite different. Join this session to learn more about OA policy and practice in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Equitable access to OA publishing is increasingly of concern, and models in other areas utilize other models, such as the use of institutional repositories or distribution of supplemental funding. We’ll learn how early career researchers can be particularly impacted and how recent pushes to acknowledge collaboration from the Global South are improving the situation.

Topics include current industry standards; the growing DEIA and ethics initiatives that organizations have recently put into place; what kind of changes the European Accessibility Act will require from publishers; and advice for enforcing policies within organizations.
