Open Access publishing takes a leap forward
The GYA is part of a consortium, led by F1000 Research, a leading Open Access publisher, and also including Eurodoc and LIBER as partners, that was awarded the contract to build and promote the platform.
This new collaboration, which will involve outreach and training activities, is also a great opportunity to promote Open Science more generally.
