Pathways to Open Access – UC's big-tent approach to transforming scholarly communications

Günter Waibel

Closing Keynote of the Force11 2019 conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, presented October 17 2019. The talk lays out the "many pathways to open access" strategy the University of California has embraced, and describes negotiations for transformative open access publisher agreements as one of those pathways. The University of California's stand-off with Elsevier emerges as a key event that has re-energized other pathways (OA policy, infrastructure, data publishing) at the UC, and opened up a far-ranging debate in North America about the cost of scholarly communications, as well as the value of open access.
