10 July 2011 KE workshop on journal transition at COASP on September 2011
KE is arranging a workshop on transition of journals to open access at the COASP conference in Tallinn
The workshop will present Knowledge Exchange (KE) and its current initiative in relation to assisting scholarly societies in transitioning their journals to open access. The workshop aims to collect the experience of OASPA members, the Public Knowledge Project and other organisations in supporting the transition to open access. The workshop also seeks to identify good practice in existing business models for scholarly society journals, particularly in relation to sustainability and the achievement of benefits to the scholarly community.
Finally in the workshop a discussion will be held on further actions Knowledge Exchange might take in collaboration with other organisations to support scholarly societies in a transition to open access.
