OA Switchboard Webinar: Matching Publication Costs with Publication Funds
The OA Switchboard is pleased to announce our next webinar which will focus on the shared use case: Matching Publication Costs with Publication Funds that our launch customers and founding partners are currently working on collaboratively.

Open Access output is growing year-on-year and the need to collaboratively develop open infrastructure to streamline communication between stakeholders has become a priority.

As a research institution or funder, it is complex to assess if and how a certain OA publication meets requirements and to track publications, spend and sponsorship. Especially, with multiple OA strategies in parallel:

“Administering our central OA fund is harder than we imagined since every publisher has their own system and invoicing processes.”
“There is no way we can possibly sign OA publishing deals with every single publisher.”
“We also want to support non-APC based and non-corresponding author based initiatives, and multi-payer models.”

As a publisher, it is hard to find out if an article publication satisfies an author's OA requirements and to secure publication funds:

“It takes a lot of manual work to determine if a funder or institution is willing to cover an APC.”
“Not all publishers can maintain individual agreements with hundreds of institutions and funders.”
“For non-APC-based initiatives, it would be helpful to find financial donors.”

Participants in the OA Switchboard share an ambition to simplify the fulfillment of OA publication-level arrangements (supporting all OA business models, policies, and types of research output) and to relieve the burden on the researcher.

The eco-system to work better for everyone: learn, adjust and progress.

Join us live for this highly practical evidence-based look at how the OA Switchboard is helping to match publication costs with publication funds for all these use cases via a series of short five-minute talks and use case presentations.
