Creating a Robust Accessible Federated Technology for Open Access

Description du projet

Soutenir le Diamond Open Access pour qu’il atteigne son plein potentiel

Les modèles d’accès ouvert (OA pour open access) révolutionnent la communication et la collaboration scientifiques modernes. Ils suppriment les coûts et les barrières physiques, offrant un accès libre aux données scientifiques et aux informations sur la recherche. L’association en ligne à but non lucratif Diamond OA fait partie des plateformes universitaires internationales les plus prometteuses, rassemblant une communauté d’universitaires, de décideurs politiques et de membres d’organisations à but lucratif et non lucratif de recherche de haute qualité. Diamond OA a toutefois besoin d’un soutien technique et organisationnel pour exploiter pleinement son potentiel. Le projet CRAFT-OA, financé par l’UE, renforcera Diamond OA en améliorant les bases technologiques de ses plateformes, de ses logiciels et de son infrastructure. Il facilitera la découverte et l’appréciation des activités et des résultats de Diamond OA.

Objectif

After several decades of evolving, Open Access (OA) publishing is now at the centre of scientific communication, providing access to scientific publications without barriers. In Diamond Open Access, authors can publish free of charge as the institutional sector with universities, research institutions or libraries provide the necessary technological infrastructure. While the commercial model of Open Access dominates in anglophone journals from the Global North, the Diamond OA model shows a much higher level of diversity and origin. However, the Diamond OA landscape continues to be fragmented, is often underfunded, and is not always technically proficient enough to develop its full potential for science and society. The CRAFT-OA project aims to consolidate the Diamond OA publishing landscape. The project focuses on four threads of activities to improve the technical and organisational infrastructure of Diamond OA: (1) Provide technical improvements for journal platforms and journal software (2) Build communities of practice to foster overall infrastructure improvement (3) Increase visibility, discoverability and recognition for Diamond OA publishing (4) Integrate Diamond OA publishing with EOSC and other large-scale data aggregators. CRAFT-OA’s 23 consortium partners from 14 European countries are all engaged in institutional publishing and its infrastructures, and committed to sustaining and developing capacities in the field. Many CRAFT-OA partners are leading organisations at national and European levels in terms of open publishing, and represent internationally visible centres of expertise in Open Science and FAIR implementation with strong connections to EOSC. Within 36 months, CRAFT-OA will deliver technical and community tools, training events, training materials, information, and services for the Diamond OA institutional publishing environment. It will foster communities of practice with the capacity to sustain the project improvements over time.
