Webinars are being organised to present the OA Switchboard to the wider community, supported by demonstrations/presentations of real-life use cases by launching customers.​

  • Tuesday 8 December 2020
    The OA Switchboard is a tool that can be called upon as and when needed, or integrated in stakeholders’ own systems and workflows to achieve automation and scalability. This webinar brings together participants from publishers, research institutions and our tech partner to present and discuss real-life use cases. Learn what specific challenge they implement the OA Switchboard for and how a simple communication hub can handle many different situations.

    The short five-minute case study presentations will be followed by a Q&A. Join us live to find out all about the OA Switchboard, how it could help your organisation, and to ask any questions you may have.

Specifically for, and with, the stakeholders’ partners, we recently organised a very well attended interactive workshop, about technical integration of the OA Switchboard API with these other systems, value-adding solutions on top, so the ambition of an automated, integrated, scalable solution will be achieved.
