#COAR Strategy 2019-2021 and Work Plan 2020 (Building a Global Knowledge Commons)


COAR Strategy 2019-2021
COAR (Confederation of Open Access Repositories) is an international association with over 150 members and partners from around the world representing libraries, universities, research institutions, government funders, repository networks and others. COAR brings together individual repositories and major repository networks in order to build capacity, align policies and practices, and act as a global voice for the repository community.

Collectively, repositories form a sustainable foundation for a global knowledge commons that preserves and provides access to diverse and valuable research outputs (articles, data, etc.), in support of open scholarship, thereby advancing new discoveries, the social and economic impacts of research, and scientific transparency.

Vision A sustainable, inclusive, and trusted global knowledge commons based on a network of open access digital repositories
