November 15, 2021 – Rockefeller University Press is pleased to announce our partnership with OA Switchboard (https://www.oaswitchboard.org/about), which aims to make it easier for institutions to manage read-and-publish deals with multiple publishers. A “back office” service, OA Switchboard enables funders, institutions, and publishers to send and receive standardized messaging between all parties via API, User Interface, or e-mail to report on deal compliance and share version-of-record article metadata, among other functions.
RUP currently uses the OA Switchboard to report to its read-and-publish partners and share article metadata (https://rupress.org/journals/pages/rup-read-and-publish-agreements). We encourage more institutions, funders, and publishers to join OA Switchboard, and to contact OA Switchboard Executive Director Yvonne Campfens for more information. Learn more about OA Switchboard in this three-minute video.
