  • Advancing Open Access in the Netherlands after 2020: from quantity to quality, Hans De Jonge, Dutch Resarch Council; Jeroen Sondervan, Bianca Kramer, Jeroen Bosman, Utrecht University, the Netherlands

The first presentation by Hannah Rosen and Celeste Feather discusses the survey of predominantly United States higher education libraries conducted by LYRASIS Research in 2020 to understand the spectrum of attitudes and actions related to Open Access. Briefly, the results indicated that the U.S. approach to OA is decentralised, lacking the focused trends that are apparent in other areas of the world. This presentation will outline the results of the survey in more detail, as well as the conclusions LYRASIS has drawn and the work that has been undertaken to develop an inclusive approach to a variety of OA initiatives.
The second presentation by Helene Brinken and Andreas Kirchner will share experiences and interim results from a new project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF): " – Competency and Networking Platform in the Field of Open Access". The project builds on the web portal providing information, transfer of competences and networking for the German Open Access community. The information, training and networking offers developed during this three-year project are aimed at researchers, research support staff, and the broader Open Access community.
The third presentation by Jeroen Sondervan, Jeroen Bosman, Bianca Kramer, and Hans de Jonge explores options to advance Open Access after 2021, using the Netherlands as a case study. Its premise is that there is a need to look at qualitative aspects of Open Access, alongside quantitative ones. The talk will first take stock of the progress that has been made before suggesting how to broaden the agenda. It is meant to act as a starting point to discuss what should be priorities to work on moving forward, including for research libraries, and also beyond the Dutch context.
