OASPA conference, Paris, 17–19 September 2014
The sixth annual conference of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) will be held in France for the first time, at UNESCO in Paris, on 17–19 September 2014.
OpenEdition is delighted to support OASPA as official sponsor of the 2014 conference. Pierre Mounier, OpenEdition’s deputy director, will be present at this event.
Founded in 2008, OASPA’s objective is to support and represent the interests of open access journal and book publishers in all academic disciplines, by:
- defining quality and best practice criteria;
- supporting the development of economic and editorial models that favour the dissemination of publications in open access;
- raising awareness about the values and principles of open access among the academic community and general public.
The association is open to professional open access publishers, whether commercial or non-profit (research libraries, university presses, etc.), as well as to all institutions that work in the domain of open access publishing. OpenEdition has been a member of OASPA since 2012.
