Earlier this year, SPARC released an in-depth Landscape Analysis of the changing academic publishing industry and the implications of the large-scale deployment of data and data analytics. The the academic community’s response was immediate and strong, and it underscored the need for coordinated and strategic action to avoid the potential consequences.

As the project unfolded, SPARC recognised the need for a range of potential solutions for the key stakeholders to consider pursuing. The purpose of this document is to build on the Landscape Analysis by offering a roadmap of potential actions that stakeholders can use to chart both individual and collective responses. Recognising that solutions to these complex issues are not 'one size fits all,' this document offers a framework with multiple, concrete solutions that individual organisations can improve and adapt to their local culture and needs. The solution set is by no means exhaustive, and is intended as a starting point for the community to build upon.
