Refining the Semantics of Open Access
AbstractIn an attempt to stress a specific aspect of the "open-access" paradigm, experiences in setting up a collaborative publication platform in the social sciences are reported. The guiding principles in this context, the functional and technical requirements of the content producing partner, the open-access journal Forum Qualitative Sozialforschung / Forum: Qualitative Social Research, are therefore presented first. Thereafter, a more general perspective of the project German Academic Publishers as an initiative mediating and federating expertise in the field is introduced before proceeding to the core section, dealing with aspects of technical standardization and transparency as a vital basis for open-access strategies and which is provided by the Social Science Information Centre.
