peter.suber's bookmarks 2017-10-10


"Many Scholarly Kitchen readers will be familiar with Knowledge Unlatched, an open access (OA) program that has gained worldwide attention for a number of initiatives, perhaps most famously a project whereby libraries pool money to support the publication of scholarly books on an OA basis by established and well-regarded publishers. On October 5, Knowledge Unlatched put out a press release announcing “its transformation into a central Open Access platform,” through which it will both “support publishers and OA initiatives by managing the funding processes for their OA models” and also “provide libraries and funders all over the world with one central place where they can support OA programmes.” Intrigued but also a little bit unsure as to what this new initiative actually meant, I reached out to Knowledge Unlatched with some questions, to which Managing Director Sven Fund graciously and promptly responded."
