Organised by the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), COASP is an annual conference for the open access publishing community to gather 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 from 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 COASP for all those working in open access globally.
