Opening the Future: A New Model for Funding Open Access Monographs

peter.suber's bookmarks 2022-06-02


Abstract:  We outline the work of two university presses, with assistance from the Community-led Publishing Infrastructures for Monographs (COPIM) Project, in creating an innovative revenue model to fund Open Access (OA) monographs at a traditional publisher. Building on library journal subscription models and on Knowledge Unlatched's approach to monograph funding, this OA publishing model (called “Opening the Future”) gives members special access to a backlist, with the revenue then used to make the frontlist openly accessible. We also examine the general landscape of OA and funding models and discuss some of the challenges and benefits.
