Share this on social media:

Co-Action Publishing and Lund University Library have been awarded substantial funding from the Swedish Royal Library through its OpenAccess.se Programme to create a ‘Best Practices Guide to Open Access Journals Publishing’.

Set up to create an electronic guide that addresses key issues for editors, researchers, librarians and university presses considering an open access publishing venture, inputs for the guide will be collected through interviews with editors and presses.

The guide will also be informed by existing literature on specific areas of OA journals publishing and will take into account reports from relevant projects that have earlier received funding from the Swedish national OA and Nordbib programmes.

The final version of the guide will be available by January 2010, with a draft version available in January 2009.
