Webinar Content

On Friday 11 September 2020, MDPI organised the second BSPF2020 webinar, moderated by Prof. Dr. Ed Constable from the University of Basel. The talks were given by Prof. Dr. Silvio Peroni from the University of Bologna, Prof. Dr. Ludo Waltman from the Leiden University and Prof. Dr. Stefanie Haustein from the University of Ottawa. These were followed by a discussion and Q&A session.
The webinar was organised within the framework of the 2nd Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum (BSPF), which will be held virtually on 26-27 October 2020. A main topic of discussion of BSPF2020 will be the challenges facing learned societies in this transition to Open Access, but the conference will also cover a broad array of topics relevant to these challenges, like the development of alternative metrics, the evaluation and promotion of researchers, the OA price transparency, the current situation and limitations of transformative agreements, copyright, etc. Registration for the virtual conference is now open.

Please note that the live recording has been edited to make for a better non-live experience.

SAVE THE DATE: The 2nd Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum

The 2nd Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum (BSPF) will be held virtually on 26–27 October 2020. The aim of the forum is to offer a platform for open and constructive conversation between researchers, learned societies, university librarians, funding agencies, scholarly publishers, publishing platforms, and other concerned stakeholders (professional associations, etc.) to identify implementable solutions for a sustainable global transition to open access. A main topic of discussion of BSPF2 will be the challenges facing learned societies in this transition to Open Access, but the conference will also cover a broad array of topics relevant to these challenges, like the development of alternative metrics, the evaluation and promotion of researchers, the OA price transparency, the current situation and limitations of transformative agreements, copyright, etc.

This will be a unique opportunity to work together towards sustainable solutions for a successful global transition to open access.

We would like to invite all relevant stakeholders, especially the research community and representatives of learned societies, to join us and participate by sharing their experience, views, opinions, or results, and, to submit a proposal in response to one of the calls.

The University of Basel and MDPI look forward to welcoming you to our virtual conference!
