2022 SSP Open Access Workshop

Open Access: Understanding Mission, Models, and Mindsets

Close all those tabs, shut down your notifications, and join us! Our highly interactive, 101-style OA workshop is back by popular demand.

Over the past 20 years, Open Access publishing has evolved from an ideal into a widely accepted practice in scholarly communications. But who funds OA, how it is implemented, and to what extent content is truly “open” can vary widely depending on the stakeholder—librarian, funder, publisher, or end user. How OA is defined and how widely it is adopted also differ among institutions, regions, and disciplines. 

Attendees of this introductory workshop will learn about the history and evolution of OA, from the Budapest Open Access Initiative of 2002 to Plan S, from green and gold OA models to the latest transformative agreements.

The workshop will also cover:

Brief history of OA and its position in the broader context of Open Science
Different types of OA, from green to diamond
Affordances and limitations of OA
OA considerations for different stakeholders 
An introduction to funding models: transformative agreements, pure publish agreements, memberships, single-payment 

The interactive, hands-on workshop will be of interest to both early-career attendees as well as anyone looking for an introduction to OA publishing and its context in the wider academic ecosystem. Attendees from last year’s event described it as “extremely useful,” “very informative,” and “packed with information,” so don’t miss this opportunity!
