Transitioning to Open Access: Opportunities and challenges for Libraries, Institutions, Publishers and Authors - Angus Cook
Angus Cook, Director of Content Procurement CAUL (Council of Australian University Librarians) will provide an update on recent activities to provide greater opportunities for Australian and New Zealand authors to publish open access. Since 2020, CAUL has been negotiating Open Access agreements on behalf of its consortium members so that articles can be published without the need of Article Processing Charge (APC) payments.
Angus will also discuss the benefits these agreements bring to institutions and authors, and some of the challenges experienced when introducing these types of agreements. Also included will be a discussion on how these agreements fit within scholarly communication frameworks and policies.
