UK higher education IT agency Jisc has become a core member of OPERAS, a European research infrastructure that coordinates and pools open scholarly communication in the social sciences and humanities.

OPERAS announced that Jisc would represent the UK and would help to organise activities within the country. In this role, Jisc will also be the contact point for OPERAS’s open-access business models working group.

“I am very pleased to be joining the OPERAS Core Group on behalf of Jisc,” Graham Stone, senior research manager at Jisc said in a statement. “As a trusted neutral organisation in the UK, many of the UK members of OPERAS are based at Jisc’s member institutions. In addition, the work of OPERAS fits in well with our current activity supporting a transition to open-access monographs.”
