Subject: [IP-OA_Forum] OASPA is working to create equity in open access - learn more in this new post
The inclusion of all scholars is essential for advancing human knowledge and also for a successful transition to OA, yet the world of OA academic publishing is not a fair or inclusive space as our recent conversations and older conversations show. OASPA recognises that OA at any cost is not acceptable whilst simultaneously understanding that there are real costs to publishing. We recently committed to making open access more equitable, and today's blog post by OASPA's program manager Malavika Legge announces our workshop series on equity in OA.
OASPA’s equity in OA workshops are bringing libraries and publishers together to help participants and OASPA better understand the issues, examine existing solutions, develop new thinking, and lead to a place of pragmatic fixes. Full information is available on the post.
