What are the lessons learned by open access pilot partners?


In 2020, Elsevier’s first North American open access agreements went into effect. What have pilot partners—the institutions’ librarians, researchers, and Elsevier—learned since?

Please join us for a panel discussion detailing how Elsevier is working with customers to support their open access goals. Hear directly from Elsevier open access pilot partners at the University of Florida, Carnegie Mellon University and San José State University (one of the CSU campuses) as well as Elsevier open science leadership as they discuss the pilot development process and learnings to date.
