      Towards Open Science: Challenges and Ways Forward for European Universities 25m

      Professor Jean-Pierre Finance, Chair of the EUA Science2.0/Open Science Expert Group, will explain EUA approach towards Open Science by bringing together first-hand information and experience from three main areas: 1) Open Access policies (universities through EUA’s survey on Open Science - data from 500 universities; research councils – through Plan S); 2) financial aspects, through its survey on "Big Deals" (data from 31 National Consortia) and Publish&Read Project; 3) research assessment for research careers (briefing). EUA implements its Roadmaps on Open Access (2016) and on Research Assessment (2018) in close collaboration with its ad-hoc groups: Expert Group on Science 2.0/Open Science, the High-Level Group on Big Deals and the Negotiators Group. EUA develops strategic positions, surveys and workshops which are becoming a reference for universities and in the framework of the EC Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP).

      National Licence Negotiations Advancing the OA Transition: A View from Sweden 20m

      The National Library of Sweden (NLS) has worked with advancing open access (OA) to scholarly output since 2006. In 2017 it received an appropriation directive from the Government to act as a national coordinating body in the work towards a transition to immediate OA of publicly funded research output by 2026. As a consequence, the NLS includes this objective in its vision for 2025 to lead the work moving from subscription-based to immediate openly accessible research publications. As part of this objective the Bibsam Consortium therefore negotiates journal license agreements including OA components in order to help achieve a rapid and sustainable transition to OA. Recognizing our leverage in these negotiation has also meant that stepping away from the negotiation table is an option, and the case of the Swedish Elsevier cancellation will be further presented. In order to reach the target set by the Swedish Government, there is a strong need for institutional reallocation of funds. The main stakeholders in Sweden must not lose momentum in this process but make a concerted push forward in negotiations with publishers to achieve a sustainable scholarly publishing system in unison with its international counterparts.

      Open Access – A Scientist´s Perspective 25m

      Prof. Dr. Peter H. Seeberger will discuss open access and its implications on publishing from the scientists perspective. As a chemist and biochemist who directs a department of 90 coworkers as well as the editor-in-chief of the platinum open access journal “Beilstein Journal for Organic Chemistry” he can offer different perspectives.

      Open Access and Plan S for Researchers 25m

      A coalition of national research funders in Europe has recently set funding criteria that all research publications should be issued in full and immediate Open Access. This talk will explore the details of this 'Plan S' and how researchers can comply with Plan S and actively get involved in Open Access.
