On 27 July 2020, the RLUK OAPP Group hosted a webinar demonstration of the OA Switchboard initiative. The demonstration was led by Yvonne Campfens, Project Manager of OA Switchboard.
The OA Switchboard initiative is a not-for-profit collaboration between funders, institutions and publishers. The OA Switchboard is a central information exchange hub, connecting parties and systems, streamlining the neutral exchange of OA related publication-level information.
This initiative is currently being overseen by Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA). When the OA Switchboard moves to an operational stage, following a successful 2020 project, a sustainable governance structure and funding model will be in place.
