Open access publications are peer-reviewed research, which are free to read and free to re-use. Increasingly on international policy agendas to promote equity of knowledge access, national and cross-border funding bodies are also heavily promoting OA as a funding requirement.
Over the next three years, CEUP will prototype a funding model that provides access to a selection of key titles from CEUP’s highly-regarded backlist. Revenue generated from member subscriptions will in turn support newly-published books to be open access from the point of publication.
Executive Chair of CEUP and longtime publishing innovator, Frances Pinter, has been leading the press’s transition to OA in partnership with the Community-led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs (COPIM) project.
