MIT Press Direct to Open (D2O) Prospectus

peter.suber's bookmarks 2021-05-20


Direct to Open (D2O) is a new, collective action model, built to support the open access publication of digital monographs from the MIT Press. Open scholarship benefits authors, readers, and the academy at large. At the same time, the traditional, market‐based business model for scholarly monographs no longer works. D2O seeks to move digital scholarly books—monographs and edited volumes—from a gated purchase model to an open community‐supported approach. D2O brings libraries and the MIT Press together to open access to knowledge in a new way.
