New international coalition takes crowd-funding style approach to secure the future of open science

Publié le 13 novembre 2017, par Thérèse Hameau

In an effort to strengthen and secure the network of non-commercial services that underpin the burgeoning field of Open Science, a newly-formed coalition of international organisations, including SPARC Europe, is spearheading an unconventional appeal.

The Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS), which formed just over a year ago, is now making its first funding appeal to the global academic and research communities ; a request for funding support for two widely used services : the Directory of Open Access Journals and SHERPA RoMEO. The former is an online index of open access journals while the latter is an online resource providing analyses of publisher open access policies, along with summaries of self-archiving permissions and conditions of authors rights on a journal-by-journal basis.
