OPERAS has launched 7 working groups at the First OPERAS Validation Workshop, held on 26/27 June 2017 in Amsterdam, to explore future services. The working groups first presented their work at the OPERAS Conference “Open Scholarly Communication in Europe. Addressing the Coordination Challenge”, which took place from 31 May – 1 June 2018 in Athens.

Each group is coordinated by an OPERAS core member and has developed a white paper in July 2018. Follow the links below to learn more about the working groups and how to get involved.
