In the last several months, there have been a number of misleading statements about open access repositories made by several publisher groups. These statements and blog posts seem to be part of a coordinated strategy to diminish the role of OA repositories in favour of the gold (and for many publishers) APC route for policy compliance. The aim is to create a narrative that gold open access is the only “legitimate” route for OA, and inculcate these misconceptions within the research community. COAR contends that the repository community should be following these events closely, and work together with other stakeholder communities - researchers, universities and funders - to define and elevate our own narrative, which associates repositories with the values of inclusion, diversity, trust, and innovation. This interactive panel will bring together panelists from the university, funder, and repository community to discuss how we can work together as a community to counteract this publisher narrative and be more proactive in defining the role and value of repositories in the future of scholarly communications and open science.
