Knowledge sharing event - The transition to Open Access in scholarly publishing: the landscape for society publishers

Date: 14 November, 13.30 – 15.00 UTC

In October 2021 ISC Members voted to adopt eight fundamental principles for scholarly publishing (https://council.science/actionplan/why-scientific-publishing-matters/publishingprinciples/), starting with universal open access for both authors and readers. However, models of Open Access vary, with differing impacts for the authors and readers of scientific research, as well as for the publishers of scholarly journals.

This knowledge-sharing event for ISC Members and Affiliated Bodies will provide an update on some of the latest policy changes and trends, and possible implications for society publishers both large and small. It is aimed at all ISC Members and their individual members, as well as ISC Affiliated Bodies, and should be of interest to all who produce and publish research, act as peer reviewers or serve on editorial boards, as well as those Member representatives directly involved in the publishing system.
