DIAMAS launches an open call to identify reference materials

DIAMAS, which stands for Developing Institutional Open Access Publishing Models to Advance Scholarly Communications, is an EU consortium of 23 organisations from 12 European countries, well-versed in OA academic publishing and scholarly communication.

To support its mission to better establish Open Access Diamond and institutional publishing infrastructure, DIAMAS is launching a community call to any contributors willing and able to provide details of open science resources such as guidelines, best practices and documentation, training materials, and toolkits.

These materials should address aspects such as journal funding; ownership and governance; open science practices; editorial quality, management and research integrity; technical service efficiency; visibility; and equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI).

This information will be used to create a registry of reference materials that will be made freely available for further use.

The call is aimed at anyone capable of supplying such information, but particularly librarians, scholarly editors, publishers, academic and policy making institutions among other roles and professions.

The deadline for providing information is July 7.

Full details of the scope of the call, as well as information about the DIAMAS project are available on their website:
