The role of the Sounding Board
GOAL intends to bring together as many Swiss universities of applied sciences and of teachers’ education as possible. The Sounding Board is the place where Open Access specialists and/or other representatives from these institutions such as university managers or administrators can come into close contact with GOAL.
The Board’s role is a relevant one, as it advises the Project Team on important decisions such as:
- Inclusion or exclusion of certain types of journals,
- Securing cooperation between various institutions,
- Development of tools to be (re-)used by project partners and interested parties
Furthermore, the members of the Sounding Board can contribute to individual work packages.
