The OA Book Usage Data Trust (OAEBUDT) effort is working towards addressing the challenge of aggregating and curating OA book usage (OAEBU) data by enabling community-governed sharing of quality, interoperable OAEBU data. Currently, they are developing the draft OA Book Usage Data Exchange and Stewardship Rulebook to specify the principles that generate trust through OAEBUDT participation, usage data management, processing, and provision.

With that aim, the OAEBUDT is inviting feedback on the drafted principles to ensure they are developed in line with the community. You can participate by taking part in focus groups or by providing your feedback via online surveys. 

You can sign up for one or both options via this form:
