As we journey towards full OA, are we using the same GPS to map the route?

With many discussions focusing on the move towards a full and immediate open access future for scholarly publications, this session will explore how this will be achieved, discuss whether there is agreement on the desired end point, consider whether all parties are on the same road, and identify the implications for what the final destination looks like. Focusing on this ever evolving conversation, questions the session will seek to address include: Is full OA best achieved by the stick of regulation or carrot of market competition? What will the world look like once the transformative agreements cease to be “transformative” and are the new normal? How will concerns related to equity and inclusion be addressed? What will be the role of libraries and scholarly societies? The discussion will be chaired by Carrie Webster, VP Open Access at Springer Nature, and will begin with an overview by Lisa Hinchliffe, Professor at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, on the current state of transformative publishing arrangements, transformative journals, and the role of transformative read and publish deals. An expert panel will then respond to questions and share their experiences and perspectives from being on the transition journey. Given the fast moving nature of this topic, exact speakers are to be confirmed nearer the time but we hope to include such experts such as a library consortia leader actively negotiating with publishers (e.g. OhioLINK), a society publisher that is having to review their existing business model in light of the changing publishing environment, and a representative from cOAlition S. We will engage the audience by giving them a platform to feed into the conversation, ask pressing questions, and add their own observations.
