Journal Observatory

Journal Observatory community event

To mark the end of the Journal Observatory project and to launch the project's results, we organized an online community event on April 25, 2023. During the event, we presented our work, including a live demo of the Journal Observatory Browser to show how the tool can support users in efficiently finding answers to questions like: what journals in my field (e.g. sustainability research) provide options for Diamond Open Access publishing? How do the preprinting policies of two journals compare? What journals in my field adhere to Open Peer Review, in the sense of publishing review reports?

The program and recording of the event can be found below.
