University of Alberta Libraries becomes first SCOSS funder


The University of Alberta Libraries became the first SCOSS funder to join the coalition with their commitment to support both DOAJ and SHERPA/RoMEO. Following is a statement from the university’s Associate University Librarian, Denise Koufogiannakis:

“The University of Alberta Libraries (UAL) is committed to building open infrastructure for scholarly communication and is pleased to support DOAJ and SHERPA/RoMEO via the SCOSS funding initiative. Both these services are essential to the success of UAL’s open access initiatives, including our digital repository and our journal hosting and publishing service. They are a vital part of enabling UAL to provide quality open scholarship services that reflect the University of Alberta’s commitment to ‘uplift the whole people’.“
