/ About


The Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) annual conference enables the open access publishing community to get together to develop and advance discussions, relationships, policy and research around open access publishing. 

Delegates from a wide range of backgrounds are brought together for a range of panels, events, and networking opportunities. We hear diverse perspectives on publishing from around the world, and welcome attendees at all stages of their careers in publishing, librarianship, government, higher education, funding agencies, nonprofits, and other affiliated industries. Community and collaboration is at the heart of open access publishing, and we offer both at the conference for all those working in open access globally.
