How do we make open access sustainable for scientific publishing?
Comment rendre le libre accès durable pour l’édition scientifique?

Panel Organized by: Canadian Science Publishing

With the demand for an all-in transition to open access imminent, publishers are at an inflection point. The sustainability of new and untested publishing models poses uncertainties for publishers and may raise unintentional financial burdens to researchers, reinforcing systemic inequalities and global inequities. How does Canada make open access a sustainable way forward for discovery and dissemination of scholarly communications? This panel is a solutions-focused and audience-driven discussion to propose realistic next steps for Canada’s science stakeholders to develop and test frameworks that support a sustainable shift to open access.

À un moment où l’exigence d’une transition complète vers le libre accès est imminente, les éditeurs se trouvent à un tournant. La viabilité de nouveaux modèles d’édition non testés pose des incertitudes pour les éditeurs et peut faire peser un fardeau financier involontaire sur les chercheurs, renforçant ainsi les inégalités systémiques et mondiales. Comment le Canada peut-il faire du libre accès une solution durable pour le repérage et la diffusion des communications savantes? Ce panel est une discussion axée sur les solutions et alimentée par l’auditoire afin de proposer des mesures réalistes pour que les intervenants scientifiques du Canada élaborent et testent des cadres qui appuient un passage durable au libre accès.
