ALPSP Course – Growing Successful Open Access Journals

Tuesday, 2 – Wednesday, 3 May 2023

Are you involved in the day to day running of a journal or its programme and need to deliver on your Open Access publishing strategy? Do you have editorial or production responsibility for implementing an OA programme? Do you need to inform your approach to OA from a practical perspective? This course will equip participants with the tools and insights to make a success of Open Access journals. It will take people through the complexities and challenges of Open Access, highlighting the ways in which OA publishing is deeply different to subscription publishing (and some ways that it is the same!).

The course will be a practical, hands-on exploration of launching, converting, running and developing Open Access journals. Delegates will participate in group discussions and work through case studies and scenarios to prepare them for meeting the challenges of running OA journals. Through the lens of a typical day for running an OA journal or journal programme, we will explore the issues encountered, including strategy, economics, finances, pricing, ethics, operations, sales and marketing.
