  2. Alternative forms of publication: setting-up of OA publishing platforms; setting-up of innovative revenue models/funds for journals; transformation and business models for learned society journals; support for institutional OA repositories in the context of interoperability at national or international level; quality control and compliance with OA metrix and DORA.
  3. Research assessment: propositions of best practices of alternative research assessment methods within specific disciplinary or data communities; novel ways to implement key aspects of the DORA Declaration; new forms of metrics (“Altmetrics”); tailored recruitment processes on all academic levels taking into account Open Access and Open Science services and outputs of researchers.
  4. Setting up of shared services & e-infrastructures: develop repository solutions as shared services and e-infrastructures for the implementation of Open Access; promote the usage of repository solutions compliant with the OA national guidelines; set-up the necessary researchers’ support for using such resources.
