The Open Book Collective invites participants to complete our Collective Development Fund Scoping Survey. This survey is designed to help inform the way the Open Book Collective designs forthcoming grant funding calls for its ‘Collective Development Fund’. This fund will be issuing around £100,000 in grant funding between early 2024 and early 2026 to Open Access book publishers and infrastructure providers. One of its key aims is to support publishers, infrastructure providers and other organisations to build capacity to increase the quantity, quality and diversity of Open Access books.
The Collective Development Fund is funded from two sources: directly, from funders as part of the Open Book Futures project, as well as from our publisher and service provider members. The Open Book Collective allocates around half of the fees it charges publishers and infrastructure providers to the Collective Development Fund.
