The BOAI20 steering committee is working on a new set of recommendations to celebrate the Budapest Open Access Initiative’s 20th anniversary. As part of this initiative, BOAI20 is hosting community calls and wants input from students, early career researchers, and librarians. Join SPARC and BOAI on Thursday, October 21st, at 1pm ET 10am PT to discuss open access in your work or regional context, and the future of open access we want to build together as a community. You can register by clicking here.

During the call we’ll discuss questions, such as:
  • What are your long-term hopes or goals for OA?
  • What inequities in scholarly publishing and research can OA address?
  • What current or new approaches to OA would best address the particular needs of your community or region?
  • And questions or ideas that you have!

Calls will be recorded for the purpose of accurately reporting the community input. For questions, please email boai20an...@gmail.com. If you are unable to attend, you can provide feedback to the BOAI20 steering committee by responding to the community questions via email.

Yesterday, we also released the latest episode of our Unsettling Knowledge Inequities Podcast, which focuses on the history of the BOAI. You can find the episode online here or in your favorite podcast app!
