Maria Zucker (De Gruyter)

Webinar, of interest for librarians, in English

In 2010, De Gruyter published the "Handbuch Bibliothek 2.0" ("Handbook Library 2.0"), its first open-access publication. Today we offer over 2,800 Open Access book titles on degruyter.com and our OA book portfolio is continuously growing. How did we get there? What were the important milestones along the way and the main drivers for this development? In this webinar, we will shed some light on these questions.

Official event of the Frankfurt Book Fair. Panel discussion, of interest for librarians, funders and academics, in English

Open research speeds up the collective development of scholarly communication by making research available to anyone with internet access, anywhere in the world. It fosters academic exchange by removing technical, financial and legal barriers. That said, as a predominantly humanities publisher, at De Gruyter we recognize that the transition to open access is not a uniform one and we’re working closely with our researchers, librarians and research organisations to make this journey together. For subject areas where authors do not have funding to pay for APCs or BPCs, De Gruyter is working on other business models that distribute publications fees across different stakeholders. Our goal is to enable open access publishing for everyone.

Webinar, in English, of interest for librarians worldwide

Post-lockdown, librarians have become the heroes and heroines of academia. Covid-19 has undoubtedly brought huge challenges, but in your professional capacity you – and, inspired by you, your publisher partners – are seizing the opportunities following in its wake.  This is the silver lining that marks the transition from tradition to not only the new normal, but the next normal and even presages the normal after that!

Please join us for a debate on how the pandemic and subsequent lockdown has affected libraries and the communities they serve; and what will happen next. Share your experiences, insights and “crystal ball” predictions.  Let us celebrate your achievements!

Webinar, in English, for librarians and academics

After three years of digitising, the DGBA project is coming to an end – and it’s time for summarising! With almost 50,000 titles digitised, what are our biggest achievements? Where have we improved? Together with our partner Datagroup, we’ll discuss the meaning of digital archives and traditions, unique selling points in quality, and strategies to take the cultural heritage of 270 years of publishing into the digital age.

Panel Discussion, In English, Duration 1h, for Librarians, Funders, Library Suppliers

When Annual Reviews introduced Subscribe to Open (S20), they introduced an alternative way to convert subscription journals to open access, with a model that isn’t reliant on Article Processing Charges (APCs). Since then, more publishers have taken up the S20 model recognizing that certain journal titles and subject communities require a different path to transition to open access. This panel will include a selection of publishers that are exploring S20 for their portfolios. We will discuss the reasons why they chose to test the model, the pros and cons, and future prospects.
