OASPA Online Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing 2020

Type of the event:

The OASPA 2020 Conference will take place online during the week of Monday 21 – Friday 25 September 2020.

The 2020 conference will address open access at a time of global challenge, taking on the demands and opportunities for open scholarship in relation to past and future crises in different regions of the globe. OASPA 2020 will also be a forum for collective reflection on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and our ongoing endeavour to ensure scholarship is open and accessible to all.

The program committee is working hard to deliver an exceptional series of sessions, exploring:

  • The latest developments in global open access policy 
  • Funding and operational models for equitable open access
  • Moves toward community-owned, open infrastructure
  • Engaging researchers in open scholarship
  • Pricing and cost transparency
  • Perspectives from small and scholar-led publishers
  • The future of open scholarship

Please feel free to discuss the conference on social media using the hashtag #OASPA2020. Enquiries regarding the conference should be directed to info@oaspa.org.

XI Open Access Week: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion

Openness can be a powerful tool for building more equitable systems of sharing knowledge. Rebuilding research and scholarship to be open by default presents a unique opportunity to construct a foundation that is fundamentally more equitable. Yet today, structural racism, discrimination, and exclusion are present and persistent in places where openness is a core value. As a global community, it is important to understand that the systems and spaces of the present are often built upon legacies of historic injustice and that addressing these inequities is a necessity.
