Scoping the OA & OS Infrastructure Landscape in Europe

If you are based in Europe and are running a service or infrastructure that supports OA or OS anywhere in the research cycle, your feedback is critical!

A rich field of essential Open Access (OA), Open Science/Scholarship resources (OS), and infrastructure has organically developed in Europe in recent years. Many of these resources, as you may well know, are not sustainable—even though they underpin our evolving OA and OS landscape.

SPARC Europe is conducting a survey for Invest in Open Infrastructure. By taking part in this survey, you can help the community bring greater visibility and a deeper understanding of the rich offering of scholarly communication resources based in the European region; and ultimately, help attract more funding. On the basis of what is learned, it will also help showcase those who are leading Open infrastructure champions.

Your feedback is critical. The information you share will ultimately help funders—governments, funding organizations and agencies, institutions, libraries, service providers, and others—conceive effective strategies for financing essential Open infrastructure.

The survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete, and is open until 5 June 2020. In the event that you are responsible for more than one service or infrastructure that supports OA or OS, please submit entries for each.

Once closed, the survey result will be reviewed and compiled within the following two months, and will be shared during late summer/early autumn 2020.
