What did we Read, What did we Publish: Distilling the data that librarians need to manage transformative agreements
Presented by: Seth Russell (Taylor & Francis), Michael Levine-Clark (University of Denver), and John McDonald (EBSCO Information Services)
Building on prior research around frameworks for assessing the combined value of open publishing and comprehensive read access that these deals provide, this presentation will feature a librarian, a publisher, and a vendor who will address multidimensional perspectives to the challenges that the industry faces with the dissemination, collection, and analysis of data about authorship, readership, and value.

Achieving Institutional Goals through Open Access Publishing Partnerships
Presented by: Joe Lerro (Taylor & Francis), Rachel Scott (Illinois State University), and Rachelle McLain (Montana State University-Bozeman)
This session provides publisher and librarian perspectives on framing the Open Access agreement as a partnership that allows institutions to achieve fundamental organizational goals. A cross-functional partnership is essential to drive value and impact of the research produced by institutional authors and published by Taylor & Francis. By approaching Open Access agreements as a partnership, librarians and publishers are better equipped to find solutions that meet needs, facilitate expanded buy-in and adoption, and advance institutional research goals.
Lifting-up Humanities & Social Sciences Researchers through Library Stakeholder Cooperation on Open Research
Presented by: Emily Farrell (Taylor & Francis), Jeffrey Carroll (Rutgers University), and Erin Pollard (US Department of Education)
There is broad agreement that research, teaching, and learning in the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) are core contributors to understanding and improving human life. In supporting HSS to increase open research (OR) practices, and therefore increase impact, librarians, publishers, and funders need to cooperate to support a diversity of approaches. Read & Publish agreements have shown dramatic increases in supporting HSS OA (Library Technology, 2023), and are one sustainable route to open, however we know that a single model will not provide a comprehensive pathway. Not only is this diversity needed for regional and local variation, but HSS disciplines face particular challenges: lower funding access, minimal uptake and understanding of data sharing practices, a wider range of research methods, the need to fund both long and short-form works, and the increasingly varied range of digital outputs across the research cycle. How do multiple stakeholders come together to share needs, constraints, and outcomes, to craft sustainable ways forward for HSS OR? And how is the essential role of the library shaping faculty engagement with OR practices in collaboration with publishers?
This session will address current and developing ways of supporting HSS OR practices to ensure researchers are not left behind. Rutgers University will discuss approaches including increases in library-community engagement efforts, effects of the University Senate OA policy, and participation in open access agreements. Taylor & Francis will speak to collaborative efforts to increase OR model diversification for books and journals, and editorial partnerships in publicly engaged humanities. Finally, we draw in funder efforts to align mandates, newer to HSS researchers, that will encourage more uptake of public access practices. While there remains uncertainty for HSS disciplines in the transition to OR, we believe in a positive open future for HSS through multistakeholder collaboration that encourages knowledge sharing and experimentation.
