The California Digital Library is pleased to announce its new membership in the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA).  Founded in 2008 to “represent the interests of Open Access (OA) journal publishers globally in all scientific, technical and scholarly disciplines,” the OASPA focuses on standards development, business modeling, Gold OA advocacy and education within the academy and beyond.  The eScholarship journals program was reviewed by the OASPA board and determined to be aligned with the association’s code of conduct, as described here:  http://oaspa.org/membership/code-of-conduct/.  The CDL is delighted to join the OASPA and to join the important work of identifying and implementing best practices for Open Access scholarly publishing.
