In March 2022, the Action Plan for Diamond Open Access was launched, upon initiative of Science Europe, cOAlition S, OPERAS, and the French National Research Agency (ANR). The objective of the Action Plan is to further develop and expand a sustainable, community-driven Diamond OA scholarly communication ecosystem.
YERUN is among the numerous organisations supporting the Action Plan and is eager to actively contribute to its implementation. This is why we are organising an online event on 20th June (10:30 – 12:30 CEST) aiming to contribute to the ongoing discussions and complement the intentions laid out in the Action Plan with a more hands-on perspective: what are universities doing to promote this yet under-exploited publication format? What are the obstacles that are preventing it from reaching its full potential? What can the research sector do to overcome these obstacles?
Through presentations and discussions in breakout rooms, a fruitful dialogue will be fostered to better define the role that every actor can play in promoting Diamond Open Access.
