Diamond Open Access 2023 Roadmap

Community Webinars and Global Summit

18>18 Sep. 2023

In the lead-up to the October 2023 Global Summit on Diamond Open Access, Science Europe, cOAlition S, OPERAS, and the French National Research Agency (ANR) are organising two webinars for the community to prepare discussions for the global summit and to take decisive steps towards a stronger Diamond Open Access ecosystem for scholarly communication.

The ‘Action Plan for Diamond Open Access’ was launched in March 2022. It has since been endorsed by 155 organisations and 150 individuals. To emphasise the global outlook of our community, the Action Plan is now available in Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish, with more translations on the way.

First Community Webinar

Monday 17 April 2023, 16.30–18.00 CEST

We invited endorsing organisations and individuals of the Action Plan to join us and establish the main topics to be discussed during the Global Summit. Based on the Action Plan and a draft concept note, we discussed their views and feedback.

The slides of this webinar are available for download here.

Second Community Webinar

Monday 18 September 2023, 16.30–18.00 CEST

This event will be dedicated to a discussion of the goals and objectives of the ‘Global Summit on Diamond Open Access’ that will be held on 23–27 October 2023 in Toluca, Mexico. Our community will also review and make suggestions for the draft declaration that will be launched during the event.

Endorsers of the Action Plan received the invitation and registration details. If you are interested in becoming a member of the community and participating, endorsement for the Action Plan is still possible.
