Hold the Date: Summer Series of Open Access Good Practice Events

Please find below details of five events being held this summer to celebrate the completion of the nine Pathfinder Projects as part of the Jisc-funded Open Access Good Practice (OAGP) initiative.

The two-year projects have investigated, developed, and encouraged best practice for implementing open access (OA) within institutions under five themes:

  • advocacy
  • baselining and policy
  • workflows and structures
  • metadata and systems
  • cost management

We would like to invite you to attend one, some, or all of the five events held across the UK in June and July where members of the Pathfinder Projects will showcase the work that they have done in these areas, introducing attendees to tools, resources, and experiences which can help when implementing OA at your institution. Breakout sessions will also provide an opportunity to discuss key areas within these themes with Project participants and hear more about best practice techniques and procedures.
