Yvonne Campfens, executive director of the OA Switchboard, presented an overview of the Switchboard and shared pre-recorded statements from a panel of user-stakeholders: Liz Bal and Jennifer Sanchez-Davies of Jisc, Alex Howat of the Microbiology Society, and Adam Der of the Max Planck Digital Library. Throughout her presentation, Campfens also shared quotes from interviews conducted with representatives of research funding organizations, publishers, and research institutions. The comments from the panelists and interviewees served to illustrate the potential benefits of the OA Switchboard for organizations which are producing, supporting, and transitioning to Open Access (OA) publishing.
