Help us understand Open Access Diamond and institutional publishing

30th March 2023News, Open Access, Open Science

The DIAMAS project has just launched a survey which is of high relevance to the future of Open Access!

DIAMAS supports Open Access Diamond and institutional publishing by setting new standards, increasing visibility, and promoting the sustainability of a diverse publishing landscape. SPARC Europe is a proud partner of this important project.

The project has just launched a new landscape survey and with it we hope to map how the institutional publishing sector in Europe is currently organised in order to understand existing challenges. This will help begin the development of a range of resources which will offer practical help to for publishers, including tools, guidelines, quality standards, policy recommendations, and training programmes : all to build capacity for Diamond OA.

Please help us by filling in the survey to get a comprehensive picture of Open Access Diamond and institutional publishing and you can download the English PDF to view the survey offline. We’d very much appreciate it!
The survey will remain open until 30 April 2023. 

In addition, DIAMAS is also organising a series of surveyathons to assist participants with completing the survey in 11! different languages. You can see information about these events here:
SPARC Europe and LIBER will host a joint one on 26 April 2023, 10 CEST. Please register here. Find out about the project and take the survey with experts at hand in case you have any questions.
