CARL, CRKN, and ARL present the following webinar:
Investments in Open Services via The Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS)
Date: Thursday, November 5
Time: 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)
The Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS) is a network of influential organisations committed to helping secure open access and open science infrastructure into the future. Officially formed in early 2017 through SPARC Europe, SCOSS aims to provide a co-ordinated cost-sharing framework that enables the global OA and OS community to support the non-commercial services on which it depends.
This webinar will present an overview of SCOSS’s progress thus far, celebrate its successes, and highlight some challenges faced, and then will engage participants in a discussion around Canada and the United States’ role in the exciting yet difficult endeavour of supporting and strengthening the diverse and uneven global open scholarship infrastructure.
