  • Next challenge was how to engage a community whose understanding of OA was limited.Decide to build a broach church. By not having a dedicated Ed board it’s a broad as it can be – i.e. it’s the whole community.
  • Explaining/educating what the criteria was
  • Community is engaging, reading and citing
  • Jisc is a registered charity and champion the use of digital technologies in UK education and research.
  • If a journal has over X% OA, then action is taken to adjust the subscription priceOA content is not counted in subscription pricingIf OA content inc, then the subscription price is adjustedIf OA content decreases, pricing will riseAPC waivers will be given to top subscribers proportional to the volume of OA content Based on prior 1/2/3 years OA data?Big deals subscribers? How many APCs paid per institution? Should society partners have a say Librarians: Make budgeting easy!
