EIFL is pleased to partner in the ‘Developing Institutional Open Access Publishing Models to Advance Scholarly Communication’ (DIAMAS) project, which was launched earlier this month and has received funding from the European Union to develop Diamond Open Access Publishing in Europe.
The DIAMAS project brings together 23 European organizations. Over the next three years (2022-2025) the project partners will map out the landscape of Diamond Open Access publishing in the European Research Area and develop common standards, guidelines and practices for the Diamond publishing sector. The project partners will also formulate recommendations for research institutions to coordinate sustainable support for Diamond publishing activities across Europe.
Diamond Open Access refers to a scholarly publication model in which journals and platforms do not charge fees to either authors or readers.
The DIAMAS project will also interact closely with the global community of the ‘Action Plan for Diamond Open Access’ signatories.
The 23 organizations participating in the DIAMAS project are Aix-Marseille Université (AMU) (Coordinator), OPERAS, CNRS, EIFL, the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies (TSV), JISC, the Association of European Research Libraries (LIBER), University of Barcelona, University of Zadar, University of Zagreb, Science Europe, the European University Association (EUA), the Open Access Scholarly Publishing Association (OASPA), Arctic University of Norway, the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), University of Göttingen, SPARC Europe, Utrecht University, the National Documentation Centre (EKT), IBL-PAN, the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), and the European Science Foundation (ESF) (acting for cOAlition S).
