Join DE GRUYTER webinar on:

JOURNAL TRANSITION FROM SUBSCRIPTION MODEL TO OPEN ACCESS

WHEN: 25. OCTOBER, 15.00 CET
WHERE? Follow the link.

OVERVIEW:

In 2014 De Gruyter converted 14 journals to OA – this webinar looks at overarching strategies for journal transition from subs to OA – including current OA publishing landscape and single factors (like managing submissions, citations and funding) that play a role during the process.  Is it worth it? Who will foot the bill? What to expect? And how to bring the EAB on board? The introductory one-hour webinar is built around three sections to allow participants to work out the flipping strategy for their publication and to timely and reasonably plan  the change.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

  • Editors of subscription journals
  • Journal Editors
  • Managing Editors

PROGRAMME:

PART ONE: OA is the new black. Why many traditional journals take the plunge into OA?

  • OA Journals - Key Facts and Figures
  • Open Access options (differences between Green, Gold, and Platinum)
  • Why transform  journals from subscription to OA? 
  • Funding Opportunities - mandates from major organizations (Author-pays and other options, Institutional Membership, Knowledge Unlatched)
  • Transformation by De Gruyter 

PART TWO: Managing Change -  People. Finance. Workflows.

  • Author-Pays model  - how to learn to embrace it? 
  • Communicating Change  - How the decision to transform the journal will influence key people -  EAB, authors base, reviewers
  • Authors' support – paying and non-paying authors; waivers, APCs, transition times.
  • Business model - different approaches  
  • Open Access – Three years on. What changed and what? The small triumphs and the challenges remaining.

PART THREE – No more chasing the subscription deals. It is now the new authors you’re after.
