Publishers, institutions, and funders are committed to experimenting with new business models to advance Open Access programs. But as these groups collaborate to create first-of-their-kind deals, questions of transparency can arise, especially around the data driving the agreement terms.
The challenge with improving and enabling this transparency? Both publishers and institutions are finding that their current processes and lack of clean, sharable data are hindering their efforts to efficiently communicate the shared benefits of agreement terms with their partners. If new OA business models are to move forward, data transparency and efficient communication of that data are critical for building and maintaining trust.
In a fireside chat presentation, panelists will discuss how they work collaboratively to bring OA agreements to life. Speakers will explore tools and processes they have invested in to help them enable transparent collaboration resulting in a streamlined, mutually beneficial agreement. Through moderated Q&A, they will explore lessons they’ve learned along the way and how improved transparency – data and otherwise—has propelled them forward. In this open conversation, attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and provide their own experiences with the group.
