for academic publishers

who want to:

support a smooth and compliant author journey and report on OA publication output

The OA Switchboard can be used by publishers to enhance their workflows, enable fulfilment of OA publication-level arrangements, increase the visibility of their publications, and more. Participation in the OA Switchboard will lead to enhancements in your. metadata and integration with the increasingly complex open access research and publishing ecosystem.

As an intermediary, the OA Switchboard simplifies the sharing of information between publishers, institutions and funders, thereby reducing the transactional cost for stakeholders, and it provides a safe space for publication metadata.

We currently support two use cases:

  1. Reporting Made Easy (supported by P1-messages)

  2. Matching Publication Costs with Publication Funds

Get inspired by participating publishers' Cases, Testimonials and Interviews.
