Presentations from the first OASPA Conference
From September 14-16, 2009, the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) held its inaugural conference in Lund, Sweden. The talks from the meeting are now available online.
OASPA was launched officially last year, on OA Day. The aim of OASPA is to develop a community of OA publishers, large and small, to foster high standards, and to promote the broader adoption of OA publishing.
In Lund, OASPA constituted its first official Board, and PLoS is delighted to be included as a Board member. The first President of OASPA is Caroline Sutton of Co-Action Publishing.
There are some terrific talks to watch and listen to from the meeting, including “Ten Challenges for Open Access Journals” from Peter Suber.
Many thanks to Kaveh Bazargan of River Valley, for generously recording the event and making it available.
