Summary:

This is the third event in the series where infrastructure providers and librarians will discuss why not-for-profit, community-led open infrastructure is so important for Open Access books and how it can best be supported by funders, publishers, and libraries.

In August 2021, UKRI launched a new open access policy, which for the first time includes a provision for long-form scholarly works including monographs, book chapters and edited collections published from 1 January 2024.

In preparation for policy implementation, Jisc and the Open Access Books Network have come together to hold a series of online events which will focus on different publishing models for open access books.

This online event is the third in the series, and in it, infrastructure providers and librarians will discuss why not-for-profit, community-led open infrastructure is so important for open access books and how it can best be supported by funders, publishers, and libraries.
