OSADM _ Open Science in Art, Design and Music

The disciplinary fields of Arts (photography, visual and performing arts, such as dance, theatre and cinema), Design (including sub-disciplines such as visual communication, industrial design, fashion design and interaction design) and Music (including sound and aural arts) present a series of complex issues related to the reuse and distribution of artwork and of third parties content under copyright, not accessible in public domain and subject to a series of restrictions. These disciplinary fields produce a wide range of multimedia outputs, they imply action-research and practice-based research, and they collaborate with specialized national Swiss publishing houses. This situation makes the implementation of Open Access in the disciplinary fields of ADM (Arts, Design and Music) particularly complex. At the same time, practices developed within these fields address issues which are relevant in other disciplines. The present project proposal aims at supporting the Swiss disciplinary field of ADM in implementing the swissuniversities Open Access action plan 2021-2024 in collaboration with key stakeholders. More specifically the project involves a network of Swiss schools of ADM and it develops centralised and local services. The centralised service produces guidelines and solutions for a selection of case studies with the support of a legal team, it produces webinars and training for the local staff, it involves Swiss institutions in international networks and it triggers Green and Gold Open Access among the publications in the field of ADM. At a local level, the different schools involved notify case studies, receive training and coaching to support their researchers, teachers and collaborators, to include Open Access and Open Data (i.e. copyright management, open licenses, multimedia formats, reviewing processes) within students’ curricula and to negotiate with national publishers specialised in ADM. The project contributes to alternative forms of publications and it participates to international initiatives: it implements in 2022 the guidelines, in 2023 training and coaching, and in 2024 the negotiations with institutional, national and international publishers. Institutions involved: SUPSI (Ticino), HES-SO (ECAL, Lausanne; HEAD – Genève; EDHEA, Valais), ZHdK (Zurich), HSLU Hochschule Luzern – Design & Kunst (Lucerne), BFH (Bern), FHNW (Basel).
