Wayfinders #3: dominant OA models revisited

OASPA is excited to announce our third webinar of our ‘wayfinders’ series, which takes place on Tuesday June 25, 2024, 3pm BST.

OASPA’s wayfinders series brings to life practical case-studies helping all organisations find ways to increase equity in open access (OA).   

This session picks up where wayfinders #2 left off and continues to look at the journeys of publishing organisations that are (or were) delivering OA through per-publication charges. Wayfinders #3 will collect views from those improving or iterating on per-publication charge models, as well as those evolving away from such charges.

“We will hear from the American Geophysical Union, AJOL, MIT Press and PLOS.

Full information can be found on the latest blog post.

Please join us live for this free webinar and contribute to the discussion. …”
