EuChemS weighs in on debate over the future of scholarly communications

An expert group, set up to support the policy development of the European Commission on Open Science, published in January 2019 a report on the ‘Future of scholarly publishing and scholarly communication’, later opened to feedback by the members of the High-Level group of the Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP) that also advises and supports the Commission in developing policies for the transition to open science. Through a Position Paper, EuChemS has outlined its vision of the role and function of different actors in the scholarly communication system; the future of the evaluation of research and the types of scholarly contributions, venues and paths for dissemination; the future of business models; and finally concrete measures actors, such as learned societies, can put into place to move forward. The position paper is available here.
