Open Access transformation of journals of the Geoscientific academic societies

Online event

Open Access transformation of journals of the Geoscientific academic societies
16 March 2021, 13:00-14:30

Participation: Free of charge and without registration via the following link: Online Conference Room (BigBlueButton).

Programme see below.

At this event, the German Mineralogical Society (DMG) and the German Quaternary Association (DEUQUA) will share their experiences with flipping their journals to Open Access. In addition, other Open Access (business) models beyond the “article-processing-charge” model often used in the natural sciences will be presented and discussed. Also, the DFG and the FID GEO will present their options for supporting scientific societies in the Open Access transformation of their journals.

This event is aimed in particular at the members and the leadership of geoscientific societies who would like to inform themselves about the possibilities for the Open Access transformation of journals and exchange ideas. All other interested parties are welcome to attend as well.

Academic society Open-Access-activities beyond journal transformation

Online event

Promoting Open Access: Academic society activities beyond journal transformation
22 Feb. 2021, 3-4 pm

Participation: Free of charge and without registration via the following link: Online Conference Room (BigBlueButton).
Programme see below.

– Please note that the event will be held in German –

Scientific publishing is increasingly changing to free access and free re-use, i.e. to “Open Access”: funders, publishers as well as scientific institutions support this change through a variety of activities and incentives. Academic societies play an important role in this transformation because they help shape publication standards for their respective professional communities and also often publish scientific journals themselves.

Regardless of whether a professional society already publishes journals in Open Access or is not yet even considering an OA conversion of its journal, there are many activities that professional societies can develop to support Open Access. Three academic societies will present examples of their work in support of Open Access.

This event is particularly aimed at geoscientific societies, but also other professional societies, who would like to learn more about ways to support Open Access.

The event will NOT be about the Open Access conversion of journals, for this the FID GEO is organising a separate event on 16/03/2021.
