Knowledge Exchange consensus on monitoring Open Access publications and cost data: Report from workshop held in Copenhagen 29-30 November 2016

Stern, Niels

The second workshop on monitoring Open Access
publications and cost data related to publications,
which is the focus of this report, was a direct response
to the suggestions made in the first Knowledge
Exchange workshop on OA monitoring held in Utrecht in May 2015, which concluded
that Open Access definitions, workflows and collaboration
should be closely linked in order to keep monitoring
simple and open, allowing best practice to emerge and
be built upon.
Hence this second workshop was designed to create
some tangible recommendations by gathering experts
from all the KE countries and beyond to discuss and
compare results and ongoing experimentation in the
fields of:
`` Monitoring OA publications
`` Monitoring cost data for OA publications
The Copenhagen workshop successfully addressed
both topics in a number of ways. Keynote presentations
gave useful and general overviews of ongoing initiatives
and results while presentations from six different countries
offered unique insights into the most prominent activities
regarding monitoring of OA publications and related
cost data. Finally, and most importantly, two breakout
sessions involved all 57 participants in discussions about
monitoring, leading to 48 concrete recommendations.
