The EIFL partner consortia nominate OA Coordinators. OA Coordinators form the backbone of the network, and are a focal point for national open access initiatives, as well as providing input into international fora. EIFL OA Coordinators identify national open access projects and local partners; provide feedback to the EIFL OA programme manager. The Open Access programme provides training in open access practices, strategies for advocacy and creating partnerships; an opportunity to participate in open access task forces on a regional and international basis; tools and resources to support the advocacy activities. See EIFL OA Coordinators for names and contact details.
