AUTHOR(s): Zoé Ancion (ANR), Lidia Borrell-Damián (SE), Pierre Mounier (OPERAS), Johan Rooryck (cOAlition S), Bregt Saenen (SE)

DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.6282402

Science Europe, cOAlition S, OPERAS, and the French National Research Agency (ANR) present this Action Plan to further develop and expand a sustainable, community-driven Diamond OA scholarly communication ecosystem.

It proposes to align and develop common resources for the entire Diamond OA ecosystem, including journals and platforms, while respecting the cultural, multilingual, and disciplinary diversity that constitutes the strength of the sector.

This initiative aims for a scholarly publishing infrastructure that is equitable, community-driven, academic-led and -owned. This will enable the global research community to take charge of a scholarly communication system by and for research communities. It therefore welcomes all researchers, organisations, disciplines, and journals who share its vision and ethos to endorse it.

Below is an overview of organisations and individuals who have already done so. Further endorsements are welcome via https://scieur.org/diamond-endorsement.
