peter.suber's bookmarks 2022-05-23
"FREE WEBINAR. CRL have partnered with Central European University (CEU) Press to offer subscriptions to curated packages of the Press’ extensive backlist on the history, culture and politics of Central and Eastern Europe and Russia, including the transitions to democracy. The packages are DRM-free and libraries get perpetual access after a membership period of three years. Membership subscription revenue is used by the Press to produce new frontlist books in Open Access (OA) format, freely accessible to anyone. Shortlisted in 2021 for an ALPSP Innovation in Publishing Award, we call the scheme Opening the Future.
CEU Press and project-partner COPIM are hosting a free webinar on Tuesday, May 24th from 10am - 11am (PST) to talk about their journey in flipping to open, and to talk though the packages of backlist books on offer. The webinar will also offer Q&A. There is more information available in advance, including a more detailed pricing breakdown, on eDesiderata.
