Nano WG meeting November 19, 2015.

: "What should the future of scholarly publishing look like? How about open access? Who should decide? Can journals become more affordable and accessible? Will journals continue to serve as the primary means of communicating research? Can institutional repositories work together more effectively to integrate the world’s knowledge? The Open Scholarship Initiative (OSI) is an ambitious, global effort to establish high level dialogue and cooperation on these issues. OSI is managed by the National Science Communication Institute (nSCI) in long-term partnership with UNESCO." More about OSI available at
