Webinar Description

The Transfer Code of Practice responds to the expressed needs of
the scholarly journal community for consistent guidelines to help
publishers ensure that journal content remains easily accessible
by librarians and readers when there is a transfer between
parties, and to ensure that the transfer process occurs with
minimum disruption. Publishers are being asked to publicly
endorse and follow the Code of Practice which is a set of
voluntary "best practices" for the industry but the success of
the Transfer Code of Practice also depends on librarians asking
publishers to endorse the Code and making sure they follow it.
There is also a UKSG Transfer Notification email list and
blog where Transfer publishers post notices of journal ownership
changes. This webinar will provide an introduction and overview
of the Code and notification service and an update on how the
project is developing.

Details for logging into the webinar will be emailed to
participants prior to the webinar.
