Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) Releases Work Plan for 2021
From the COAR Website:
The activities build on our work of 2020. For 2021 COAR will focus on advancing alignment and interoperability, adopting best practices, promoting the role of repositories in open science, and progressing the vision of the next generation repository, with an emphasis on peer review and other overlay services on repository content.
Underpinning all COAR’s work is the notion that a distributed repository network can play a fundamental role in advancing the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion in scholarly communications.
