WEBINAR: Community-driven Publishing with PALOMERA & CRAFT-OA

On Tuesday 27th February, 3PM CET, DIAMAS will again work with sibling projects CRAFT-OA and PALOMERA to bring you a webinar. Register by visiting this page.

Each project is working towards an equitable future for scholarly communication and the webinar will be an opportunity for each to share the most recent developments in their work. You will be able to join a discussion to share your feedback as well.

  • CRAFT-OA empowers regional journal platforms and publishing service providers to upscale, professionalise, and reach stronger interoperability with other scientific information systems, by providing services and tools. They will present the newly published “Report on Challenges and Help Measures Faced by OA Journals and Platforms” as well as give a peek at the “Diamond Discovery Hub”.
  • DIAMAS develops common standards, guidelines and practices to build capacity for the Diamond publishing sector. They will present new findings from a large study conducted across Europe, which sheds light on the operations of Diamond publishers and builds a case for how they can be supported to advance Open Science.
  • PALOMERA sets out to provide actionable recommendations and concrete resources to support and coordinate aligned funder and institutional policies for Open Access books. They will present information about the OA book policies data collected and incorporated in the Knowledge Base as well as how is this data being validated by the community.


Additionally, an external invited speaker will talk about the importance of this cross-collaboration and policies in the OA landscape.

Thank you for being part of this conversation and helping us shape the future of Open Access!
