===============================================================

NISO will be holding a two-part webinar on March 5 and 12 to discuss
The Infrastructure of Open Access. Open Access (OA) has become a
widely accepted and rapidly growing method of publishing scholarly
content. As OA distribution gains traction, a high priority for the
community is establishing and building the infrastructure needed to
efficiently manage this content. This infrastructure includes such
elements as OA publication charge management by third parties, fee
structures and payments, visual and machine-readable identification of
OA availability and reuse rights, and discovery layer functions.

Part 1 will discuss Knowing What is Open. In Part 2, speakers will
explore how we can move Toward a Functioning Business Ecosystem. You
can register for either or both parts. There is a 25% discount to
registrants of both parts.

ABOUT PART 1: KNOWING WHAT IS OPEN

When content is published by a strictly Open Access publisher or in a
completely open access online journal, knowing what is freely
available to read by the user can be fairly obvious. This is less
clear for hybrid titles, where open access is set at an
article-by-article level. Even when a journal is fully open access,
mechanisms are necessary for conveying the OA status of articles and
their reuse rights to other systems, such as discovery platforms. This
webinar, Knowing What is Open, will  discuss just what it means to say
content is "open access," what the various flavors of OA are, and how
people and other systems can determine how open something is and both
discover and access such content. Issues around license rights, the
scale of openness, and the application of this data in discovery
contexts will also be covered.

Topics and speakers are:

Setting the Stage: How Open is Open Access? - Darlene Yaplee, Chief
Marketing Officer, PLOS

Untangling Open Access Issues in Scholarly Communication - Greg
Tananbaum, Consultant; NISO Open Access Metadata and Indicators
Working Group Co-Chair

The Lifecycle of Open Access Content - Susan Dunavan, Senior Product
Manager, SIPX, and Franny Lee, Co-Founder & VP Business Development,
SIPX

ABOUT PART 2: TOWARD A FUNCTIONING BUSINESS ECOSYSTEM

As Open Access is rapidly growing, the need to improve the business
models and relationships to create a functional ecosystem becomes more
critical. The past economic models and workflows were established
based on a subscription model. OA revenue models are typically based
on author publication charges, creating a more complicated workflow,
and it is questionable whether the new OA business practices can
sustain themselves at the scale of expected article output.
Invariably, third-party processers will need to help manage the
institutional relationships, the billing and payment processing
necessary, and likely other elements of the required business
ecosystem for Open Access.

The second part of NISO's two-part series on the Infrastructure of
Open Access will discuss how to create a Functioning Business
Ecosystem. Speakers will explore the infrastructure elements that some
community members are putting into place, discuss what is working and
what isn't, and identify problems that remain to be solved.

Topics and speakers are:

Copyright Clearance Center: Open Access & APC Management - Roy S.
Kaufman, Managing Director of New Ventures, Copyright Clearance Center
(CCC)

The Sustainability of Open Access - Cameron Neylon, Advocacy Director
at the Public Library of Science (PLOS)

Open Access Business Models for Publicly-Funded Research - Frederick
Friend, Honorary Director Scholarly Communication, University College
London
