monOApoly: a board game about Open Access


How not to get lost in the quest to publish an Open Access article? This game focuses on how a researcher can make their publication compliant with the Open Access requirements of their institution and funders. To be compliant today, a researcher should try to choose full Gold, Diamond, and Hybrid OA journals included in transformative agreements, or negotiate as much as possible an acceptable embargo to self-archive a version of their article in their institutional repository. S.He must also be attentive about predatory journals and be aware of the double dipping question. This game explores the different ways – the “colors” of Open Access – to achieve this compliance goal and aims to reflect as closely as possible the reality of journals’ conditions, and the landscape of financial support possibilities, between transformative agreements and dedicated library funds.
