Join ACCUCOMS in discussing shifts towards Open Access Publishing and how we might bring societies together to make deals similar to Plan S, Read and Publish (RAP) & Publish and Read (PAR). Publishers have successfully negotiated these types deals in Germany and The Netherlands, and we would like to explore how ACCUCOMS can help facilitate these same deals as a group. A senior representative of Max Planck Institute, an organization central to DEAL, the German consortium that most recently made the PAR agreement with Wiley, will be in attendance to share their experience.
