    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;In 2020, cOAlition S commissioned a study to gain insights into the OA publishing landscape of diamond journals and platforms, which are free to readers and authors. The research, conducted by a group of 10 organizations lead by OPERAS, aggregated data from an online survey that gathered around 1600 responses from journal editors across the globe, a quantitative analysis of data from bibliographical databases and a qualitative analysis based on focus groups of journal editors and interviews with infrastructure providers.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The findings of the study point to a wide archipelago of relatively small journals serving diverse communities, with a mix of scientific strengths and operational challenges (including compliance with funder mandates) and an economy that is characterized by a large dependency on volunteers, universities and governments, modest publishing costs and a variety of funding models.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;In this presentation, we will discuss the various recommendations of the study to increase the capacity of community-driven/governed journals and platforms, connecting them and technically supporting them in a coordinated way. We call upon funders to consistently finance the operations of diamond journals and platforms and invest in the future of diamond OA.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We connect this plea for support for diamond open access to the bigger theme of the conference by suggesting some concrete ways towards full and fair open access based on a much larger role of diamond.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
