Open access has grown to be a well-established publication model and is supported by many institutions and major funding organizations globally. However there are aspects that are commonly misunderstood or are subject to opinion-led debates, which can make it difficult to separate the myths from the reality. In this interactive session run by the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association, OASPA, participants will hear about global trends and views in open access publishing, discuss perceptions and consider the facts behind them, examine different funding and business models, and will also have the opportunity to share their own experiences within open access publishing and wider issues in open research. Of interest to all stakeholders in scholarly communications, this session will aim to tackle some of the enduring areas of concern and confusion, in order that attendees come away with a deeper understanding of how open access publishing is approached by different parties.
