More about the RA21 pilot program

The RA21 project is inviting a broad variety of stakeholders in scholarly communications to participate. We are currently calling for organizations to join our pilot program. We are likely to run several pilots in parallel with the aim of testing different solutions, in different environments exercising different use cases.

Pilots will be run along the principles of self-organization and self-funding and may require a certain level of technical capability and in-kind contribution by dedicated staff. During and after conclusion of a pilot, the results will be shared among all participants and are intended to be used to develop best practices which will be made publicly available.
