Voices from the OA books community

‘Voices from the Open Access Books Community’ is a series of discussion-based events, organised by the Open Access Books Network, that will bring together as many members of the OA books community as possible to analyse different areas of policy for Open Access books. These discussions will feed into a policy document that will be created by SPARC Europe, and presented to cOAlition S as they consider a Plan S for books.

The events are free and open to anyone interested in Open Access book publishing. Please sign up below and share the details with anyone you think would be interested: we are keen to include as many members of the Open Access books community as possible.
