Introducing the Jisc-Elsevier Open Science Forum

The Jisc-Elsevier Open Science (OS) Forum was formed to identify and undertake areas of joint activity that could improve the implementation open science and address some of the challenges. The formation of the Forum followed the November 2016 ScienceDirect agreement in the UK, where it was agreed that Jisc and Elsevier should work with the Higher Education sector to find ways to improve conditions for open science more generally outside of the negotiations. OS covers a wide range of activities, however, activity will initially focus on open access, open research data and open metrics and indicators.

The terms of reference and initial membership of the forum are available here [pdf]

On this site we will publish the papers and notes from the Forum meetings (two or three per year), and information about the joint activity that Jisc and Elsevier pursue through this collaboration.
