SSP’s interactive workshop, "Open Access: Understanding Mission, Models, and Mandates," is back for its third year and will be held on 19 and 20 July. Led by Professor and Coordinator for Research and Teaching Professional Development at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Scholarly Kitchen Chef Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, the workshop has been expanded to run across across two sessions tailored to experience levels: OA 101: The Basics, and OA 201: The Models.

This workshop is aimed at early-career professionals as well as those more experienced in scholarly communications who want to enhance their understanding of the latest developments in open access publishing and their contexts in the wider academic ecosystem.

Session 1 | OA 101: The Basics: Wednesday, July 19, 2023, 12:00 - 2:00 pm ET

Over the past two decades, Open Access publishing has evolved from an idea into a widely accepted practice in scholarly communications. Participants in this introductory workshop will learn about the history and evolution of OA principles and practices, from the Budapest Open Access Initiative of 2002 to Plan S and the recent OSTP memo, emphasizing distinguishing green and gold OA. Participants will explore how these considerations impact publishing at the article and journal level and how copyright and creative commons licenses may also factor in author compliance with funder mandates.

Session 2 | OA 201: The Models: Thursday, July 20, 2023, 12:00 - 2:00 pm ET

Open access publishing is funded through various models, including micropayments, transformative agreements, pure publish agreements, memberships, and collective action. Participants in this workshop will learn about the various business models, their applicability in different contexts, and how they can complement one another. The workshop will also explore how these models impact author compliance with funder mandates.

Discounted rates are available for AUPresses, NASIG, NISO, LPC, and ACSE Members, and bulk discounts make this a perfect professional development opportunity. Space is limited; registration is limited to 60 individuals at each session. Learn more.
