PKP Selected for SCOSS’ Second Funding Cycle
The Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS) has launched its second funding cycle. We are pleased to announce that PKP is one of three vetted services – along with the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB)/Open Access Publishing in European Networks (OAPEN) and OpenCitations – that has been selected and presented to the SCOSS international scholarly community for funding.
SCOSS was formed in early 2017 with the purpose of providing a new coordinated cost-sharing framework for enabling the broader open access (OA) and open science (OS) community to support the non-commercial services on which it depends. In its pilot funding cycle, more than 1.5 million euros have been pledged by more than 200 institutions worldwide to help secure the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and SHERPA Ro/MEO.
With the launch, SCOSS is appealing to academic institutions and their libraries, research institutes, funding organisations, national and regional governments, international organisations, learned societies, and service providers (everyone who is invested in OA and OS) to consider helping support one or more of these services through a three-year commitment.
