Officially launched November 1, 2019, COPIM (Community-Led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs) is a three-year project organized around six interlinking work packages. Funded by Research England and the Arcadia Foundation, the project is developing and building the critical infrastructures to support open access (OA) book publishing, including business models, governance procedures, reuse strategies, preservation structures, and outreach programs. These systems and infrastructures will be open and collectively managed for the public good.
During year one of the project, stakeholder workshops were held in the U.S. and in Europe. As a COPIM partner institution, UCSB Library hosted a virtual COPIM governance workshop on May 1. Originally intended to be an on-site event, the workshop was the first deliverable of Work Package #4, which is developing COPIM’s governance model and governance models for OA monograph publishers.
