Managing OA: pain points and workflows

Event summary

Are you working with Open Access on a daily basis?  Would you benefit from an event that allows you to share some of your practices and ‘pain points’ and learn from others in a range of institutions?  Would you like to hear from publishers and intermediaries, to know where they are with OA, and listen to a range of short case studies?

Why you should attend

This practical one-day seminar is designed to facilitate sharing of information and is aimed at those working with OA on a day-to-day basis in institutions.  Various stakeholders including publishers, librarians and intermediaries will provide their perspectives on the OA model and its impact on processes and workflows.  Current projects and future developments will also be covered.  There will be plenty of time to share experiences and to listen to case studies from a variety of institutions.
