A growing number of funding bodies in the USA are mandating open access publication by those they fund and in the universities this is one reason for an increasing number of researchers who want to publish in open access or hybrid journals and seek financial help. Some universities have their own allocated funds but they and many others have to find some way of matching funding with publishers for their researchers. It is now customary see libraries as administrators for these funds: a UK group found the processing to be a “huge headache” for librarians there and in the USA there is a growing realisation that the “headache” has crossed the Atlantic and month by month is growing more severe.

This “lively lunch” is intended to bring a panel of speakers with experience into discussion with the various stakeholders represented at the Charleston Conference, not just librarians but publishers and intermediaries too and ideally researchers and funders. The context for newcomers to the complexities of paying for open access will be provided but the main business will be practical problems and possible solutions. The following speakers will give short initial presentations are Patty Gallilee, Associate University Librarian Collections & Scholarly Communication, who manages the fund at Simon Fraser University Library; Barbara DeFelice, Director, Digital Resources and Scholarly Communication Programs at Dartmouth College, who will discuss both her own practices and that of other US libraries; Simon Thomson, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Open Access Key, who has worked on a ground breaking project with Jisc Collections in the UK on behalf of the library community, and Jennifer Goodrich from the Copyright Clearance Center who have created a system for publishers. The session will be facilitated by Anthony Watkinson, Principal Consultant of CIBER Research

Those attending this session may find http://aoasg.org.au/managing-article-processing-charges/ produced by the Australian Open Access Support Group a useful introduction.
