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? Finding the answers to
these and other related questions is important for research growth,
research funding, public education and policy development, global economic
development, global information access and equity, and more. And there are
many different stakeholder groups working to find the answers. But not
together, and not until now.

The Open Scholarship Initiative (OSI) is an ambitious, global effort to
establish high level dialogue and cooperation on these issues.
