Science Europe, cOAlition S, OPERAS, and the French National Research Agency (ANR) present this Action Plan to further develop and expand a sustainable, community-driven Diamond OA scholarly communication ecosystem. It proposes to align and develop common resources for the entire Diamond OA ecosystem, including journals and platforms, while respecting the cultural, multilingual, and disciplinary diversity that constitutes the strength of the sector.
Today, we publish two papers on Open Access (OA), a first one on successful OA implementation and a second one on OA for conference proceedings in engineering disciplines. On top of that, our association endorses the Action Plan for Diamond Open Access.
Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler mit der bestmöglichen Informationsinfrastruktur auszustatten, die sie für ihre Forschung brauchen, ist das Leitbild der Schwerpunktinitiative „Digitale Information“.
SSHOC will create the social sciences and humanities area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) thereby facilitating access to flexible, scalable research data and related services streamlined to the precise needs of the SSH community.
Quantitative Science Studies is the official open access journal of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI). It will publish theoretical and empirical research on science and the scientific workforce.
A not-for-profit and collaborative effort toward connecting scholarly records across global research repositories. Our work is focused on linking research projects and research outcomes on the basis of co-authorship or other collaboration models such as joint funding and grants.
OPERAS is the Research Infrastructure supporting open scholarly communication in the social sciences and humanities (SSH) in the European Research Area. Its mission is to coordinate and federate resources in Europe to efficiently address the scholarly communication needs of European researchers in the field of SSH.
