About this Event
The Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS), an initiative of SPARC Europe, works to facilitate crowd funding to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the world's Open Science infrastructure upon which we have come to depend.
AOASG Executive Committee Chair, Martin Borchert, in his role as Chair of the SCOSS Board, and Angus Cook, CAUL Content Procurement Manager, will co-present the case for the continued support of the SCOSS crowd funding initiative.
The Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) is a founding member of SCOSS. CAUL/CONZUL institutions have provided much needed financial support for SCOSS Round 1 endorsed infrastructure – DOAJ and Sherpa/RoMEO.
SCOSS has recently launched SCOSS Round 2 endorsed infrastructure for crowd funding – OAPEN/DOAB, Open Citations, and Public Knowledge Project (PKP).
Martin will provide an update on Round 1 and will launch Round 2.
Angus will advise how CAUL/CONZUL institutions can pledge and pay contributions via the CAUL Content Procurement office.
Please attend this webinar to learn more about SCOSS and how your institution can support the Round 2 crowd funding initiative.
There will be an opportunity to have your questions answered.
