“Fully OA” Blog Launched by Fully OA Group
From a PeerJ Blog Post:
A brand new initiative, the Fully OA blog, was launched this week by the Fully OA Group. Born out of the OASPA Interest Group of Fully OA journal organizations, the group provides a forum for exchange of ideas and, where appropriate, collaboration amongst publishers that only publish Open Access.
The aim of the group – and of the Fully OA blog – is to provide unity, not by creating a single voice, but by bringing together a range of different voices and perspectives that share one commitment: full Open Access. Whilst the group shares, in essence, a single aim – a transition to fully open scientific communication – it is a broad church, with differing paths and approaches to achieving that future.
Current and founding members of the Fully OA Group include JMIR Publications, Frontiers, PeerJ, MDPI, Open Library of Humanities, Copernicus Publications, PLOS and Ubiquity Press.
