Become a SCOSS partner

SCOSS encourages stakeholders in open science to support OAPEN and DOAB in its second funding round. SCOSS recommends that institutions pledge an annual donation for a period of three years, as shown in the table below, in which funding levels vary according to the size and type of the organisation. Pledges can either be paid in one lump sum (up-front), or on an annual basis.

Financial transactions will be made directly with OAPEN Foundation. You can contact Eelco Ferwerda, who will handle the donation, at e.ferwerda@oapen.org
