Preprint servers and services are actively embraced by a broad range of
research communities in North America. The point of this two-day, on-site
event is to enable participants to engage in a cross-sector discussion of
how best to integrate preprint services into existing research processes.
Participate in identifying potential issues and existing gaps that impede
researcher workflow. Scheduled small group discussions will allow attendees
to better understand specific community needs and identify mechanisms that
will satisfy those needs. What’s working? What’s not? Attend this NISO
Foresight event and help the community to further open access just that
little bit more!

Here is what just one of our presenters will be addressing:

Title: *The Unfunded Mandate of Compliance*

During the last decade, we’ve witnessed the emergence of public access
policies by a range of governmental and private funding agencies to open up
scholarly outputs that result from funded research projects. This
presentation explores the potential role of preprint services in fulfilling
such mandates, and discusses implications from the perspective of
stakeholders such as authors, readers, funders, publishers, and libraries.
Preprint services aim to ensure the rapid dissemination of research results
and facilitate open access for broad and unlimited distribution. How does
this vision intersect with emerging public access mandates and
requirements? At a global level, funding agencies continue to be uneven in
their approaches and policies in regard to publication repositories,
technical and metadata standards, and other compliance and enforcement
related specifications. Given the evolving nature of the landscape, what
are the implications of preprint servers becoming a part of the compliance
infrastructure?  What are the consequences from a sustainability
