Charleston Conference | Pre-Conference Workshop (2019)

Chaos or Complexity? Transforming Publishing Models in the Plan S Era
Tuesday, November 5 | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Hardly a week goes by, it seems, without either the announcement of a cancellation of a “Big Deal” or the signing of a “Transformative Agreement.” Library consortia in the US and abroad are turning to new, non-traditional models as thinking shifts on how to provide researchers with access to content as well as support for publications. Complicating their efforts are new institutional and funder mandates, including the evolving Plan S requirements, as well as differing needs across institutions and disciplines. Are emerging models adaptable to meet the needs of different types of institutions and publishers? Are they sustainable over the long term?

Join us for an interactive session on issues around new models, including Read-and-Publish, Publish-and-Read, Subscribe to Open, and more. Hear from publishers and institutions pursuing such transformative agreements, as well as those organizations, small and society, who fear they may be left out of the discussion. After some informative presentations, attendees will shift to small group discussion focusing on key issues raised during the session.
