The Council is engaging and collaborating with its Members, with national and international funders, with universities, with open science bodies, with publishers and with individual scientists to create a powerful and broadly-based coalition for change to ensure that scholarly publishing supports open, efficient and accessible dissemination and use of scientific work.
Priorities for reform
A zero draft working paper on priorities for reform of scientific publishing has been developed with input from the project steering group. This is intended to guide the development of an advocacy campaign around the eight principles for reform of scientific publishing, which were endorsed by ISC Members in October 2021 (see above).
Knowledge-sharing events for ISC Members
In 2022, the ISC launched a series of online knowledge-sharing events for ISC Members and Affiliated Bodies on open science and scientific publishing.
