The Scholarly Kitchen, an independent blog established by the Society for Scholarly Publishing, asked EIFL to give input into a series of articles asking, ‘How Can We Achieve Equitable Participation in Open Research?’ Romy Beard, Manager of the EIFL Licensing Programme, and Rima Kupryte, Director of EIFL, responded by urging publishers to cut or waive article processing charges (APCs) to help authors from developing and transition economy countries, and to streamline systems for depositing Author Accepted Manuscripts (AAMs) into open repositories.
