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.
