Focus Group on Subject Repositories

Background and aims

Subject Repositories offer robust publication infrastructures and various associated services for specific subject communities. One of their central goals is to promote Open Access within these communities.

This digital focus group transfers the existing networking meeting of "Subject Repositories" into a new framework. Operators of Subject Repositories meet regularly, both virtually and in person, to exchange information on current developments, support each other and plan joint projects.





The focus group meets every eight weeks (wednesdays). The next meeting will take place on 15th November 2023 from 10 am to 12 am via Webex.

You can subscribe to the mailing list of the focus group here. If you would like to actively participate in the group, you can also apply for a user account for the group's MediaWiki. To make it easier for us to assign you, please indicate that you are interested in working in the focus group "Subject Repositories".
