The diamond journal publishing model implies publishing without author side payment, while still open access to anyone. An international study on Diamond Open Access journals was recently published (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4558704). The study gives an overview of the existing flora of Diamond Open Access journals, and all their scientific strengths and operational challenges.
Also, recently, a study was done of the flora of University publishing services in Norway, of which most make use of the diamond model. The study is available in Norwegian language only (https://www.openaccess.no/felles-publiseringstjeneste-for-uh-sektoren.pdf).
In this session, Per Pippin Aspaas, Senior Academic Librarian at UiT The Arctic University of Norway will present the findings from the Norwegian study (ASPAAS_OA-WEEK_2021_2910.pdf). Jeroen Bosman, University of Utrecht, and Bianca Kramer, University of Utrecht present the international study (202110 Stavanger - OA Diamond Study.pdf).
