Presented by Martin Borchert, Chair of the SCOSS Board, Angus Cook, CAUL Content Procurement Manager and facilitated by Ginny Barbour, Director, Open Access Australasia, this webinar will present the case for the fourth round of endorsed infrastructure for crowd funding.  

SCOSS is the Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS), an initiative of SPARC Europe, which works to facilitate crowd funding to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the world’s Open Science infrastructure.  CAUL is a founding member of SCOSS, and CAUL and CONZUL institutions have provided much needed financial support for SCOSS-endorsed infrastructure which has included DOAJ, Sherpa/RoMEO, OAPEN/DOAB, Open Citations, and Public Knowledge Project (PKP). Martin will provide an update on SCOSS Round 4 and Angus will advise how CAUL/CONZUL institutions can pledge and pay contributions for these crowd funding initiatives.
