Open Access books ‘author toolkit’ workshop on 27 November 2019
Researchers: have you published an open access book or are interested in doing so? The OA book platform OAPEN (http://www.oapen.org/home) and publisher Springer Nature are holding an Oxford workshop to develop an OA book publishing toolkit for authors.
The workshop will consider researcher attitudes towards and awareness of OA book publishing, and how support for OA books could be improved. It will review tools and resources for researchers that explain OA for books (e.g. the availability of models and providers), promote the benefits of publishing OA books, facilitate the workflow (i.e. availability of funds, access to policy information), and support uptake (e.g. finding a publisher). It will feed into a project to develop a free online toolkit of resources helping researchers to understand their options.
Who is invited: researchers from Oxford University and beyond, from all disciplines, career stages and levels of existing knowledge.
When and where: Wednesday 27 November, 11am-3pm in the Bahari Room at the Weston Library. Refreshments will be provided.
Places are limited. To register your interest in taking part, please visit https://forms.gle/rQbLZ5VNWWAgtP4Y8.
