In October, the expert workshop “openCost: the road to publication cost transparency” will take place at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg from 5th to 7th October 2022, to which we cordially invite interested parties.
Besides presenting first results from openCost itself the main goal of the workshop is to create an opportunity for knowledge exchange between national and international experts in the field. It will allow them to present their perspectives in the field of publication costs and cost transparency and report on their experiences to ensure openCost is internationally adoptable.
The expert workshop will summarize the desiderata of the individual participants and the bodies they represent. These results will serve as a starting point to enhance and fine tune the current internal proposal for a metadata schema jointly developed by the openCost core members DESY Library for the JOIN² collaboration and the university libraries of Bielefeld (e.g. OpenAPC and the OpenAccess activities there) and Regensburg (electronic journals library and the OpenAccess projects there).
