It’s an exciting time to be working in scholarly communications. More funders and institutions are implementing open access or rights retention policies with publishers and researchers responding in various ways. One response from researchers is to harness the energy of the open access movement to achieve a more equitable, sustainable, and future-facing publishing system.
On Tuesday, November 8th, Daniel Goodman, one of several authors of the “Open letter to the WHOSTP and Subcommittee on Open Science” join the OpenCon Librarian Community call to discuss the motivations, goals, and experiences of the Open letter. He will also share his future vision for academic publishing through the recently launched Neuromatch Open Publishing initiative. Neuromatch proposes an open publishing platform owned by the community on which work would be free to read and publish, and all data would be made freely and openly available for third parties to build additional services on.
