Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about the Most Common Open Access Agreements


2022 | Jun 02, Jamie Carmichael, Curtis Brundy, Sara Rouhi, Heather Staines

Open Access Agreements –for single institutions and consortia, and whether labeled "transformative" or otherwise –require publishers and institutions to negotiate and manage elaborate, multi-year contracts that impact budgets and research practices. Data collection and analytics are critical component for these discussions today. This session will outline key elements of the most common OA agreements, together with "breaking news" insights from a study examining the extent of "transformation" seen to date in the research community. The panel of publishers and librarians will discuss emerging best practices and tips learned along the way. They will share the importance of good data, open communication, and transparency in the process. Viewers will walk away with a better understanding of how to approach the most common deals, how to better prepare for these negotiations and to operationalize the end result. Viewers will be polled throughout the session and encouraged to share their own stories of success and struggle as the drive toward "open science" and "open research" continues to remake so many previously established practices. || Speakers: Jamie Carmichael; Heather Staines; Sara Rouhi; Curtis Brundy

How to Build a Lasting Culture of Innovation (and What Not to Do): A Conversation with the Experts


2022 | Jun 02, Katherine Christian, Sara Rouhi, Kelly May, Ann Michael

Publishers often struggle with innovation. Attempts to introduce new people and ideas often fail to deliver meaningful and long-lasting change, leaving managers and leaders wondering what went wrong. Worse, repeated organizational attempts to create change can lead to a culture of cynicism around change management and fear of the dreaded re-org. They say that 'culture eats strategy for breakfast,' so it's tempting to think that the answer is to change the culture of an organization rather than just its products, processes, or even people. The focus on culture is laudable but can also be a trap because it's often rooted in the same paradigm that change is finite, with a beginning, a middle, and an end. Truly innovative companies don't treat change as a single event to be managed but create business structures that enable and support innovation. This session explores how organizations can enable a culture of true innovation by hearing how experienced practitioners have succeeded (and failed!) in their attempts at building a culture of innovation: • A change expert in helping transform organizational culture. • A people expert in recruiting and managing people who can help organizations become more innovative. • A veteran - someone who's been there and done that, with the scars to prove it. Through listening to real-world examples as well as practical advice, participants will leave with a better understanding of the value of a culture of innovation, how to get started on building one, and tips on some of the do's and don'ts. || Learning Level: Mixed-Learning || Speakers: Katherine Christian; Kelly May; Sara Rouhi; Ann Michael
