Subscribe to Open (S2O) is an increasingly popular approach for transitioning journals from subscription to open access—without article processing charges (APCs). Under the model, a publisher commits to opening a journal’s current content contingent on the journal’s annual revenue target being met. To better scale S2O, it is possible to link S2O offers in ways that benefit both subscribing institutions (and their authors) as well as publishers. On October 10th at 12pm ET / 9am PT, the next OpenCon Library Community Call will feature Raym Crow, who developed S2O, to discuss how the model can scale to support the transition of more journals to open access.
Registration is now required for OpenCon Library Community Calls. You can register for the October call here and details on joining will be emailed to you.
Agenda and Notes
You can find all the proposed agendas and notes from the Librarian community calls in one place, right here.
Community Calls are not recorded to support a safer environment for open and honest discussion. However, notes are taken.
What to expect
Community calls are always friendly, and we love new faces. The more you participate, the more you'll get out of it! No doubt there will be a lot of this too.
