Upcoming Webinar: Introducing PLOS Community Action Publishing

In this upcoming webinar, we’ll provide an overview and Q&A session about PLOS’ new collective action model, PLOS Community Action Publishing (CAP), designed for our highly selective journals PLOS Medicine and PLOS Biology.

We will host two sessions of the webinar on Oct 26, 2020 at 10:00 AM ET  and October 28, 2020 at 12 PM ET. Please use the corresponding links above to register for your preferred session.

The focus of the 30 minute overview will be:

  • Why #scholcomm needs to examine new business models for sustainable Open Access Publishing
  • Why PLOS developed the model
  • What it’s meant to do
  • How cost recovery works
  • The implications of capped margins
  • Potential for revenue redistribution back to members
  • Details for participation

The remaining 25 min will focus on Q&A from attendees.

This webinar is first-come-first-served for library and consortia representatives. Publishers and other publishing stakeholders are welcome to participate in our November webinar.
